About ten years ago they put that DC3 in to the gardens.There was at one stage a group called Friends oF the Botanical Gardens who had very noble intentions but in all honesty they would have been battling to do much as the damage and neglect is pretty sad.

I would have loved to have been involved but I am in Bulolo and Wau so too hard....

Its between Diddymans Ck and Milford Haven Rd.

On the subject of the gardens, I still have the scars from the gravel roads. Ian Walker and I had pedaled up to the commerical centre to sample a new taste sensation ( potato scallops !!) and some one dared me to ride down the hill from the War Cemetry level to the Milford Haven level. From memory, it went down hill, leveled off briefly, then down hill. Any way I came off big time and as I said earlier still bear the scars.
