This is a subtropical garden on a huge scale developed by mostly volunteers over the past 17 years from a deserted quarry site, a few minutes drive from the city centre.

The Quarry Gardens are well worth a visit. They are free to visit and open every day. There is a cafe being built there, due to open in Spring (October here). They have a wedding garden and sometimes open days with music and stalls.
