Accessing the Garden


The garden is designed to be enjoyed at a walking pace, with many meandering pathways and gardens just waiting to be discovered during a leisurely stroll.

Over 32 hectares (80 acres) of cultivated gardens, plus indoor showhouses and natural areas, means a lot of delightful ground to cover. For the most enjoyable experience, we recommend dressing for the weather, including comfortable walking shoes, a water bottle, sunscreen, insect repellant and a hat.

Plan your route in advance using our map (using the Google map link or download a printable version).

Riding the Bee Line

The Bee Line is a hop-on, hop-off tram service available every Tuesday until the end of the season!

Welcome to the Bee Line, a free tram service that loops around the garden with stops at key locations. Ideal for guests who want to see it all but might find the whole garden too far to walk, or who have small children with little legs. Schedule varies and is subject to availability. The Bee Line is an unguided service, intended for patrons who would like some assistance getting between areas.
