Wonderful place to visit any time of year but particularly in Autumn.There is so much to see and enjoy that a few trips are necessary to take in the beauty of the gardens. Great spot for all ages.

Been coming here since I was a child and it is still a beautiful place to spend a few hours looking at exotic plants from all over the world. The pathways are cleverly laid out and every tree and plant is identified. On a sunny day it is especially nice.

Wonderfully kept gardens. It can be a bit of an experience in the rain. Although, there are many victorian style green houses to pop in and out to shelter.

Just what you'd expect from professional people. Like all those running the Botanic. A treat to encounter any sunny day you're passing. And proper toilet facilities as a must for families. My treat was the variety of simple displayed food fare, Great stuff ! bh

These gardens were wonderfully maintained and the staff were very kind and helpful! I thought it was amazing that there was free entry into the gardens which is unheard of in most big cities.

This wonderful garden was a joy to visit. I was there this October in the most fabulous weather. The glasshouses are just amazing structures. The trees were still in full leaf and there was a good display of dahlias and chrysanthemums. Although it is a Botanic Garden, there is a parklike atmosphere. Cannot reccommend it highly enough

The gardens were quiet, green, in the middle of the city. Had some flora I had not seen before in Australia. Some great sculptures along the pathways. Great floral gardens for early Autumn.

When you are tired of city hussle, go for a walk and enjoy nice scenery, fresh air and sun if you are lucky!
