Huge garden with excellent collections (zones). You can easily spend half a day there, relatively undisturbed. Nice Japanese garden and bonsai collection too.

Brisbane is often not even on travelers list when they travel to Australia and Gold coast sucks in the hoards of tourists who flock australian shores. However, Brisbane City also offers such gems for quiet time and evening or a morning stroll

I really love taking the grandchildren here, there is so much to see from the ponds to the Bonsai gardens. So relaxed and easy walking looking at all the trees, flowers and wildlife. Plenty of lizards to see

I took a newcomer there as he loves nature. I hadn't been there for years however it is just as beautiful as I remember it! Lovely walks featuring international beauty. Spain, Mexico, Australia and Japanese style gardens to explore. Most of the plants are well labelled and a tour of the gardens is available if you wish to be taken... More
