These private gardens are the pride and joy of owner Anthony Hunte. He invites guests to come and walk his very large garden. Do not be discouraged by the idea of a personal garden, Anthony Hunte is a world recognized horticulturalist, and his garden is more of a jungle that you may think.

Hunte's Garden is lush and green, with many colorful flowers popping up in mini gardens that work together to create an artistic natural adventure. You will be able to find your way through by following the paved path that is set in place for you.

The garden is located in a gully surrounded by the rainforest, and offers a path that is easy to walk as you enjoy the mulch-dimentional gardens.

The garden offers above all else a peaceful stroll and possibly a sight of a some native wildlife. Additionally, you may run into Anthony, the owner, who will be more than willing to talk about his garden and answer any questions you may have. If you stay until dusk you'll be treated to the serenade of croaking frogs that reside on the property.
