The landscaped parts of the gardens take up perhaps a quarter of the 32-acre site, and include camellias, azaleas and other species, as well as many varieties of rhododendron. Lush lawns and ornamental lakes are complemented by picnic and barbeque facilities with wonderful views of Mount Keira.

Although much of the site is still regenerating, there are some very large examples of red cedar (Toona australis) and also many younger red cedars coming up - an encouraging sign!
