Lonely Planet review

Located in the lovely Retreat garden, this place is a must-see for the botanically inclined. The star of the show was a rare and awesome Ceylonese talipot palm, which expended all its energy in 1986 on a once-in-a-lifetime bloom and died. Other specimens include hardwoods such as mahogany. Native orchids grace the trunks, and splendid ferns nestle in the limestone holes in which the palms are planted. Take a tour or stroll in this peaceful place.
