Well worth a visit. The quantity of cacti was huge and the garden was amazing to walk around. It was an easy stroll to check it all out and even see their baby cacti for sale.
The landscape leads you to believe that not much will grow in this harsh climate. However, there are a huge variety of cactus at Bevans. It has well established walk ways to follow past the numerous different types of cactus from different countries in the...More

I thought this would be a pretty ordinary place to visit but I was really surprised. Hundreds of cactus varieties and top commentary. Worth a visit.
A real surprise. This place was great. Unfortunately the cactus were not at their flowering best due to the time we visited, we were teased with some sneaky flowers. A real labour of love has gone into this garden. The opal shop is small, but...More
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
The cactus garden is amazing, and the owner is friendly & knowledgeable. A must do when you visit Lightning Ridge!

So interesting and beautiful. A must see when visiting Lightning Ridge. The owner is the son of the founder and is passionate about keeping this wonderful garden going. Well worth a visit.
Please do not miss this stop! You can get to it by driving the Blue Car Door Tour. The cactus are amazing and the opals are beautiful and good prices! The owners are the best ever and so very gracious!
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.
A fascinating place for anyone interested in cactus. The owner started the garden and has the most amazing selection of plants that are huge. Would certainly visit again.
Lovely place, fascinating garden. Well worth the admission and very well kept.small shop, but only takes cash.
We turned up and joined a bus tour from Queensland. We were led around the garden and was astounded not only on the number different plants in this small garden but the length some people go to for something they truely love. It is an...More
Fascinating collection of cacti well presented and John was happy to share information about the collection. It would be even better when more were flowering.
If you love Cacti, then you will love this attraction. Would be great when in flower. Easy to get around.
Warmly welcomed by the owner we got some information about the gardens and their 60+ year history. A wander through was simply stunning with a quirky/fun/enormous cactus around each corner! A small $10A/$5C fee kept us entertained for just shy of an hour, heaps of...More
