These glorious gardens are divided into 20 "garden rooms" that include the Rhododendrom Woods, the Azalea Walk, and 80-year-old European beech trees. They were first established in the late 1890s as commercial and cut-flower gardens by the Woolrich family. A central terraced area with manicured hedges and a sculpture of a huge vase is stunning, as is the view across the mountain ranges from the garden café. The café serves breakfast, lunch, and afternoon tea daily; a
popular dish is the "Chatter Platter" for two with a selection of cheeses, dips, prawns, and salad (A$50).
