The Garden is one of the major regional botanic gardens on coastal New South Wales north of Sydney. It covers 20 hectares of Crown Land and is bounded on three sides by Coffs Creek, a wide mangrove-lined, tidal estuary. The Garden was designed to feature natural forest, rare and endangered Australian species, and exotic plants from other sub-tropical regions of the world. Officially opened in 1988, the Garden continues to expand, with the newest addition being a Japanese Garden featuring a lake, arched bridge and teahouse. There are five kilometres of well-made paths and boardwalks for visitors to explore this lovely botanic garden.

GLASSHOUSE CLOSED: Sadly our glasshouse was condemned due to white ant destruction. It was dismantled in 2017. All the plants are in safe storage or have been planted throughout the garden. We are saving to rebuild and working with CHCC to finalise plans.
