With over 30 unique water features, fountains and other garden art; plus a variety of ponds, streams and bridges – there’s plenty to see and explore at Fountain Gardens. The gardens are linked together by a series of paths that wind their way through the beautiful native gully, around the pond and through the rose garden area. The native gully is a sight to behold with huge ponga and trees towering above, and native flora and fauna enclosing this area to create almost cave like effect that takes you worlds away from reality.
As well as taking a relaxing stroll around the gardens, you can have fun playing with the interactive seven dwarfs fountain crafted by local potter Shirley Sparks, or trying to balance as you cross the floating bridge. At the top of the gardens you can wander along the path through the rare and magnificent giant bamboo plantation.
You will constantly hear water cascading constantly through the streams. The waterways are fed by four natural springs that run into the Zen like grove of bamboo canes where a waterfall directs the flow around the main wedding ceremony deck, and the Three Angels fountain create yet another spouting waterfall.
Here are just a few of the wonderful features that can be found within the gardens:
