Jurassic Cycad Gardens

An unusual and exotic garden attraction containing over 200 different species of plants from the ancient cycad family, all nestled among a visually striking and prehistoric rocky landscape. Jurassic Cycad Gardens features 1.4 km of self guided walking trails wind through 5 acres of prehistoric gardens. The Gardens feature collections of rare living fossil cycads, cacti, succulents and exotic plants. The complex has a coffee shop.

This fascinating garden was planned as a conservation resource providing a conservation collection, gene pool, seed orchard, as well as a display collection of rare cycads. Josef and Karen Perner travelled extensively to collect seeds from various habitats all around the globe and developed the site over a 23 year period, culminating in a stunning property housing around 40,000 cycads.
