Just south of town, these gardens are a beautiful oasis, with impressive figs, tropical and subtropical rainforest, landscaped gardens and lily-covered lagoons. The formal Japanese garden is a zen-zone of tranquillity, the cafe (open 8am to 5pm) serves tea and cakes under a giant banyan fig, and the awesome free zoo (open 8.30am to 4.30pm) has koalas, wombats, dingoes, apes, a walk-through aviary and tonnes more.
