About Mona Vale

The Monaville Garden was originally a private home and is now being acquired by the local government. The garden is a typical traditional Victorian manor, with the beautiful Avon River flowing through the garden. Walking in the garden is like being in a romantic fairy tale world. The garden centre is a Victorian private home built in the late 19th century but has been converted into a restaurant.

    I'll give you five points. The garden in the bright spring sun is more delicate and gorgeous than the botanical garden, though it's not as big as the botanical garden. We rushed to the airport and gave the garden an hour to visit. It was almost enough. No tickets, free parking, self-driving with Google EMAP to arrive accurately. The core of the garden has become a restaurant, because time has no chance to taste their famous desserts, and if there is a chance, it should be worth a try. The garden is managed by three owners. If you are lucky, you can read some stories.

    Monaville Garden, early spring flowers do not fear the cold open. I like the benches in the garden most. Every one has words. I am moved by the last words for a long time and I don't want to leave. I can't tell the story of this stranger's love, just like countless lives that have passed away or existed. There is no trace in the sky, and the birds have flown by.

    This is a beautiful garden situated between two old buildings closed because of earthquake damage. It's a good place to walk and feel the river/garden environment. The only disadvantage is that trains pass there, we don't realize there are tracks, they are well hidden.

    Monaville Garden is a typical traditional Victorian manor. It is recognized as the classic representative of Christchurch Garden. Walking in it, the bridges are flowing, the grass is flowing, the willows are shaded, and the flowers are beautiful.

    This is a beautiful paradise "MONA VALE" where flowers and gardening are very beautiful. The flower varieties are very good. The key "beauty" is the design of garden flowers, super beauty, matching with the white buildings around, super film feeling! And there are not many tourists here sincerely, suitable for walking slowly and leisurely, and the rhythm of enjoying the beautiful scenery should be the same.

    Friends brought me to enjoy the traditional Victorian manor, Avon River with scenery, nothing to say, super-romantic ~ when we came a little overcast, after lunch the sun makes the whole manor a mess of beauty II @ but feel that the restaurant's food tastes ordinary. Two dinners and one dessert were ordered casually. They are not tasty. Next time I'm going to make an appointment for a high tea 3.

    The second stop is Mona Valley. Mona Valley was built in 1899. It was originally a private territory and a garden of Elizabethan style. Walking into the garden, a river (Yafen River) divides the garden into two parts. On the other side of the river are beautiful villas. Ducks play in the river. Trees, gardens, fountains and lawns overlap in the garden. In the 1960s, the second owner of the garden donated it to the municipal government and opened it to the public, but only the lawns and gardens on the other side of the river were open. On the other side of the river, it was private territory.

    Monaville Garden is said to have originally been a private residence, which was later acquired by the government and opened to the public free of charge. The garden is a typical Victorian style. The beautiful Avon River runs through the garden. There is no time left. It would feel better if you could stay in the central restaurant for dinner.
