The gardens have been developed in a co-creative partnership with nature and have different charms and appeal at different times throughout the year. The most visual and fragrant time in the gardens is between November and March.

Guided garden tours are $5.00 per person with a minimum of 10 people required (or a minimum amount of $50 to be paid).
