Located in Caringbah and overlooking Yowie Bay, the EG Waterhouse National Camellia Gardens are a perfect destination for a relaxing meal in the Teahouse, or a picnic lunch in the sun. With two separate play areas (smaller climbing equipment for the younger kids at the bottom end of the gardens, and larger equipment at the top beside the Teahouse), ducks to feed, secret gardens to hide in and off-road parking & BBQ facilities, this is a very popular location for local kids.
Keep in mind that the gardens are situated on a steep slope, so some sections are inaccessible to prams or wheelchairs. Access to the upper Gardens and Teahouse is through the carpark on President Avenue and access to the lower gardens and play area is via the Kareena Road entrance.
