Fern House opened in July 2002 and has more than 80 different species and varieties of ferns on display, including ferns that live on rocks, trees and in the water.
Ferns are plants without flowers that range from small and delicate to quite large tree ferns. They are recognised as primitive plants being found in fossil records from more than 200 million years ago.
Visit the Fern House between 9am and 4pm each day.
View the Fern House photo gallery as a slideshow, or view photos individually in the Fern House set in Council's Flickr account.
