Last time we visited was 1985 ... the park looked abandoned and overgrown- disappointing for my husband who went there as a child in 1969. So we decided to visit this time in our travels!
What a difference... the current owners are working hard to preserve this piece of history...one man’s dream!
It was a rainy day but the staff handle it well- plenty of umbrellas and an enthusiastic parking attendant!
We chose to do a guided tour with Ben - this was great. All the highlights were covered with a great commentary- plenty of time after tour to revisit areas. Tour gives you a greater understanding of the park and the dream!
Mobility impaired are catered for...they don’t miss out!
Nice gift shop. Great book on the history of the park. Cafe had lovely fresh food and a good variety - I had the most delicious fresh roast beef with beetroot marmalade and salad sandwich - it was so yummy. Coffee was excellent.
We even got a gift when we left—- a piece of the ballroom wall which fell during a cyclone. Very special with an inspirational quote inside!
Very impressed. Would recommend you visit and don’t let wet weather put you off
