Arriving at the cottage it doesn't look like much. A parking lot and outdated tourist centre mark the entrance but beyond that lies something beautiful. The cottage where May Gibbs resided has been renovated into a cafe. The outdoor seating area reaches out over the Harvey River, providing a pleasant place to drink tea and feast on the delicious scones made at the cottage.
Focusing on the gardens themselves. They are a whole other class of spectacular, home to numerous flowers, plants and fruit trees. Along with the lush green grass surrounding the gardens, they create the perfect environment for a picnic.
A visit to the gardens is the perfect lazy-day Sunday activity. The perfect scenery for any budding photographer too!
