What you can expect

Take a journey to the border of New South Wales for a whimsical stroll through Cactus Country. This peculiar collection of succulents and cacti has been growing for over 40-years, with many plants towering over admirers.

Here you can chow down a plate of Mexican, get lost on 8 trails spanning some 10 acres of gardens and snap Instagram worthy photos aplenty. Best of all, you can take home a tiny cactus to call your very own. Cactus Country gives new meaning to the term 'hidden gem'. And don't even get us started on the cactus ice-cream...

Lovely place to walk around and spend a few hours.

This is a nice place to go for a day out. The cactus ice cream was delicious. The only thing that could be improved, was if there was some information on the different cacti to let you spend a bit more time there and learn more about them/where they are from.
