Tranquil setting with added adventure
Located at Kariong on NSW Central Coast, Mt Penang Gardens spread over 8 hectares of waterways and summer aquatic gardens.

Mt Penang Gardens are made up of 12 garden rooms including Pond Garden, Entry Garden, Bamboo Garden, Bottle Tree Garden, Rock Garden, Dragon Garden and others. You will find plenty of Australian native plants including King Proteas, Water Lilies, Banksias, Fuchsias, Lotus, Bromeliads and Native Grass Trees.

Wildlife is also plentiful, so watch out for rainbow lorikeets, cockatoos, rosellas, frogs, rabbits and lizards.

The gardens offer various programs such as:

Dip Dip Days
Great fun for the kids including catch a critter, kids gardening, arts and crafts, bean pod boat racing and garden games

The best way to see the garden is to take an easy walking self guided day tour or book a tour with a guide which lasts approximately 2 hours. In summer you can also enjoy a twilight tour with dinner at Waterfall Café.

Ideal for couples looking for a romantic garden wedding. Only one wedding per day is permitted, so you will not feel rushed.

Opening hours are daily 9.30am – 4.30 pm and the cost is $7.50 for adults and $3.50 for children. Family passes are available for $18. There is plenty of parking available.

For breakfast, lunch or dinner, venture to the tranquil Waterfall Café and enjoy a lovely view of the gardens. The café offers easy access for prams and wheel chairs and toilets are also nearby. For more information visit the Waterfall Café website.

If you would like a bit of adventure on your trip to Mt Penang Gardens, book a Segway Ride with Segway Central Coast. Located within the gardens and near the Waterfall Café, you are guaranteed to have an amazing experience. Find out more information about Segway rides.
