Went during the day and wandered around admiring all the autumnal colours. Then again in the evening for the Christmas lights which is amazing. So much more than just some lights hung in trees. The show has some beautiful sections such as the waterfall. Half way round is the Victorian fair which was great fun and fairly priced. In total we were there for over 3 hours! Highly recommend a visit to the lights and they have plenty of food and drink stalls around too.
Stunning place! One of the most beautiful botanical gardens in the world. Easily one can spend the whole day here... it's huge. Variety of plants, trees, landscape and presentations. I'm absolutely in love!
