Discover Queen’s Gardens

This is an un-discovered gem that the kids will love running around, taking in the greenery and getting their dose of Vitamin D.  The gardens were officially opened way back in 1899, and it’s beautiful lily-filled lakes, perfectly manicured lawns and lush trees and shrubbery make it the perfect spot for a peaceful pit stop.

Keep an eye out for the Peter Pan statue too – it’s a replica of the same statue in London’s famed Kensington Gardens.

Across the road Lake Vasto and Ozone Reserve are perfect cygnet and duckling spotting locations., Crowne Plaza offers free bike hire to all of their guests in case little legs get tired of the walk.

Cabana lazing
