  • Nice garden to walk around. Thumbs up for the volunteers to keep the place running. Especially the ladies at Tea room. I felt their love in my iced coffee ❤ Thank you.
  • Stunning gardens and loverly Art Deco house, hidden at the back of Leura, without tourist masses. Not expensive (not sure why some are saying it is). Great for kids too
