Suealoe is a great example of a sustainable garden where visitors can easily wander over a hectare of winding paths which are fringed with a large collection of natives, succulents, cacti, ornamentals, caudiciforms (also known as ‘fat-bottomed plants’) and  water plants interspersed with various forms of garden art.

An abundance of natives and succulents will be in flower at the time of opening.

The garden also features large cat and chicken enclosures along with a substantial aviary where visitors can view a wide range of birds, both native and exotic. These include Golden Song Sparrows, Elegant Parrots, Bourke’s Parakeets, Neophema parrots, Parrotlets and an exceptional collection of finches including St Helena Waxbills, Cut Throats, Red-faced Parrots, the African Firefinch and the stunning Gouldian Finch.
