Best place to walk in Brisbane, great atmosphere, pretty quite place in the busy city, with the view of the CBD and Brisbance bridges. Just enjoy the walk there, it is superb!

This is one of the few spots in Brisbane really worth visiting. The gardens are reasonably extensive and have a good collection of sub-tropical vegetation. The Japanese garden in particular is good.

The Botanical Gardens are a wonderful space for families to get out and enjoy some fresh air as well as take in the beauty of nature. Also at the gardens is the planetarium which always has an interesting astronomical show available (charges applicable) - though can be busy during school holidays.

You will need transport, as it is a fair way out of the city (you can also check the buses, I'm sure they'll go there). They're beautiful kept gardens and interesting hot-houses and a planetarium. If you're in for a climb, you can go up to the look-out on Mt Cootha afterwards and have a look over the whole of... More

Though this is situated about 30 mins from the CBD, it can be accessed by public bus (to the door) or by car (plenty of car parking).
