I went there at mid afternoon and had to go and walk quickly to cover up a good area to visit and see. If you are in Brisbane, don' t fail to put this attraction in your bucket list. It is worth all the walikng. This can be reached if you do the hop-on hop-off day tour.

A small oasis in the big city, buy a take-away meal from the city centrum and take the short walk to this garden. Perfect place for a relaxing meal, just minutes from the Brisbane skyline, and make sure to have time to take a walk around the park

Good place for a picnic, sitting near lake with ducks. Children and adults alike will enjoy these peaceful Botanic Gardens. Saw bamboo, fern garden, cactus garden, herb garden and tropical dome garden. There was also bonsai garden and plenty more we didn't see.

The botanic gardens were larger than I thought they would be. Good to explore. At least an hour. And when I went there about 4pm or so (winter), the cockatoos were shifting from tree to tree and pulling branches off and eating seeds from the tree. So time it when the sun is preparing to go down and you can... More

It's a little small but a nice place to walk around with the children. You can also visit the planetarium while you are there.

We really had a great time at the botanical gardens, following the trails using the map ( which we recycled, as asked). Great initiative. Loved the cactus, japanese and children's trail.
