  • The park itself is quite spectacular. Labelled foliage helps to identify what you are looking at and very accessible paths help for mobility concerns. We had soup and scones with friends as well as high tea (a bit expensive for the quantity of food) but a very pleasant experience overall. Choose one or the other if eating there. The price of admission does not include the meal so be ready to part with a bit of cash for the whole experience.

  • This was the Milner Gardens festival of lights. We go every year and are never dissapointed. Parking can be really bad though. Almost would be nice to do a shuttle to a parking lot or something.

  • Lovely experience. Next best thing to visiting England! Lots of walking if you wish. Flora, fauna and seashore. Biscuits and tea served white gloved. Our granddaughter will aways remember this esperience; as will we.

  • Wander through. Tranquil forest trails to these beautiful gardens with rhododendrons and azaleas, lily of the valley and Solomon’s seal.

    And when you’ve stood and admired the amazing view across to the Sunshine Coast, head into the restaurant for tea and scones.

    All in all a lovely destination for a day trip. If there’s time and it fits your schedule take in the Saturday morning Farmers Market in Qualicum Beach as well.

  • What a beautiful place to stop and smell the ultra fresh coastal air filtered through giant trees, mosses and ferns.

    The stroll along the paths were sometimes totally natural and sometimes totally manicured depending upon what area you were traveling through.

    There were fruit trees, flowers, towering pines and ocean vistas. There was Grandma’s Garden gift store as well as the fancy home now set up for events.

    Definitely recommend staying for a tour. 2 hours for a solid walk around or even linger longer and just enjoy the sights.

    For you birders I would add this to your trip. We saw all kinds of birds traveling up and down trees looking for a meal.

    Big cudos to all the volunteers we saw working in the gardens.

    Also we didn’t see one staff person who wasn’t accommodating and friendly.
