Go in the Azalea season in Spring, and you will be amazed by the riot of glorious colours!! Park at the top carpark and walk down to the gated plantation.

Beautiful old old flora, meandering walks, a couple of tranquil ponds right out of a Japanese picture, one with cobbled stones and ducks...a lovely outing for the family
