      A passionate person created this nursery and it is obvious form the outset. Like the rest of the touristy sights in Lightning Ridge you may wonder if you're getting what you pay for. Sadly, probably not considering the location, but still basically worth the time...More

      I have visited Bevan's Cacti Nursery many times and always delight in taking visitors to see their fabulous display. This time of year the cacti are blooming, but even when they are not in flower it's still a wonderful few hours viewing.

      We really did like the cactus garden, it's well presented, but it's not big and, as such, only took about 20 minutes to wander through. So I think $10pp for it is too much.
