Had a morning picnic on the grass here the other day before we had a look around the place. Beautiful spot to chill with some cheese and biscuits and a coffee, then went for a walk around the beautifully maintained gardens. A great little retreat and highly recommended visit.

We didn't even realise this place existed. We happened upon it by chance. But it is beautiful. A hidden oasis. Quiet, tranquil, and beautiful. The only thing that I would have loved was a coffee shop so I could sit and drink and take in the beauty.

On a warm winters day the gardens are lovely to stroll around with a coffee in hand. When it is hot in the city this temperate garden would be an oasis to visit in the summer as you could find a nice cool place to put down your picnic blanket. The local garden club volunteers do a fabulous job.

Hidden away in a quiet section of Tamborine are the beautiful botanical gardens. No matter what time of year, this is a lovely place to wander about on the many paths. The paths are well signed and you can either take an extended walk or just sit by the water and relax. You will find orchids, roses, camellias to name... More
