  1. Better a Botanic Garden than a Botanic Garden

    I loved this garden for the number of plants to be seen. The tall trees are magnificent. And we even got to see a big, noisy koala.
    The title of my review comes from a comment made by someone else in the visitors book, because it is very appropriate.
