We stopped here on our long walk from the city back to our cruise ship berthed at the port. Probably not conveniently placed for most tourists. The gardens are well kept and have an impressive array of plants. There is a cafe and toilets.

We stopped by briefly to have a peek at the Botanical Gardens. They are not amazing but given the weather conditions here they are surprisingly good. Not so surprising are the many rock structures.

This botanical garden is very pretty but is not located close to anything else and takes a while to Get to. Not worth it in my opinion, but if you do happen to be close by, go see it. Nice café Floran is located inside.
