About the Gardens
The E.G. Waterhouse National Camellia Gardens are perfect for everything from a Sunday picnic to wedding ceremonies. Located in Caringbah and overlooking beautiful Yowie Bay, they're a favourite with Shire residents and visitors alike.
The gardens are recognised by the International Camellia Society as a Camellia Gardens of Excellence. There are sixty Camellia Gardens of Excellence in the world, with the Camellia Gardens and Lisgar Gardens in Hornsby being the only two recognised in NSW.
The gardens are over 50 years old, with the site’s rich history dating back further than 1970. From the 1900s through to the 1970s they were known as the Matson Pleasure Grounds. During this time they were a popular picnic and boating area for locals and even hosted the Crown Prince of Japan and officers of the visiting Japanese fleet in 1905.
Visit any day that the sun shines for the floral display and a coffee at the teahouse.
