Eden: Paradise

Eden had been on my to-do list since I was 14, so to finally get a chance to go was amazing! It lived up to all my expectations, my only regret was that we went so late in the day, that we didnt get to see as much as I wanted to.2013-12-28 14.34.05 The car parking was really acessible and easy, but it also looked very easy to get to by public transport too. We took my elderly granny with us, and hired an electric wheelchair (Pre-book!), so we were able to move around really easily. Our first stop was the rainforest. It was AMAZING! Ive been to a few indoor butterfly farms, so I was familiar with the concept, but to see such mature plants in their (almost!) natural habitat was fabulous. We got to go right up to the roof and look down from a lookout tower, its well worth the queue, but my legs were a little wobbly for a while afterwards, so allow yourself some time to recover from the altitude and humidity! There is lots of walking involved, so bring drinks and a picnic. There is a big food court on the ground level of the domes, with lunch, hot drinks and ice cream. Make sure you try the ice cream, its made from ingredients growing inside the domes, its delicious! 2013-12-28 17.26.33 There is a free cloakroom for coats and bags, but its unattended. There is also a center devoted to hands on activities for the little ones, but we didnt make it that far.

The whole site is buggy & wheelchair friendly and unacessible routes are marked out on the map. The only thing that you CANT do with a buggy was go right up to the roof top in the rainforest dome.
