Masonmill Gardens is located in the Perth
Hills just 25 minutes from the city and is an absolutely amazing
place to visit with kids. Masonmill has
so much to offer! Come for a quick coffee and cake or stay a bit longer and
enjoy the beautiful rose gardens, koi ponds, mini golf, nature playground, restaurant
and Irish village beer garden.
This was our first
visit to Masonmill gardens so we spent a bit of time scoping out the place and
discovering exactly what was on offer.
As you pull in to the car park, you can’t miss the neat and tidy mini golf course. There are 18-holes of mini golf set around lush hedges, rose bushes and small trees. We didn’t try out the mini golf on this visit, but we hope to come back again and give it a go. Golf clubs and payment can be done through the gift shop which is located closer to the front of the grounds and completely separate from the restaurant and playground area.
There’s also a bouncy castle set up next to the golf course, which according to the Masonmill website is free to use!
Located on the other
side of the carpark (opposite to mini golf) is a pond which is full of large
Koi fish. There’s a small boardwalk with some table and chairs over the pond,
so you can spend some time watching the fish. Fish food is available to buy
from the restaurant.
The Irish village beer garden is a recent addition to Masonmill Gardens which has been constructed to look like a real Irish beer garden. It is really cute! And the perfect setting for some weekend beers with the family. A range of Pizzas and snack food are available to purchase in the beer garden as well as a variety of drinks. The beer garden has varying opening times depending on season and day, so best to confirm with their website before going.
My favourite part at Masonmill Gardens is the full fenced nature playground, which is located across from the main restaurant. There are covered tables and chairs right next to the playground. We ordered coffee and cake from the Restaurant and then sat next to the playground. The food and drinks are served in disposable boxes and cups, so there isn’t any chance of broken glass ending up in the playground.
The coffee and cake was a little pricey, but the cakes are made in-house and the slice was huge! I couldn’t finish all of mine. The food menu available for takeaway (consumption at the playground) is a limited version of the Restaurant menu. Please note that Masonmill request that no outside food is consumed on their property.
The restaurant offers views over the gardens in a cosy atmosphere; however there is a driveway between the restaurant and playground, and no line of sight of the playground from the restaurant. So if you are hoping to let the kids play while you have a meal, I highly recommend getting takeaway from the restaurant and sitting next to the playground. The gardens at Masonmill Gardens are amazing and worth taking a stroll around.
We visited Masonmill Gardens on a Friday morning during school hours so it was very quiet, but I have heard weekends and school holidays can get pretty busy. Why not make a trip out to the Perth Hills and experience Masonmill Gardens for yourself.
