03Oct18. Cable car to top $5 one way, $9 return. Good walks around the gardens. The treehouse was good, although we didn’t go inside. Cafe at the top. We were glad we went in there rather than wait for the one at the bottom of the gardens. The walk down to the city past the Beehive was good. Interesting cemetery. Some quite tragic stories on headstones.
