I came here with an agenda--see Australian plants. By incredible good fortune, a former docent at the garden was visiting and volunteered to show me the natives! Yes, I got a private tour and all of my many questions answered. The man who toured me around was so pleasant and knowledgeable. The rest of the gardens are lovely, too, and... More

Located right at the bottom of the hill with its lookout it has a giant area to explore. For your convenience they build little streets through the gardens so you can at least get from A to B by car. Closer within the gardens however you can only walk which isn't to much. It seems like a lot more on... More

The staff at the entrance were incredibly helpful and supplied us with maps and suggested routes. We spent almost three hours here and explored most of the park. There is a look out that has a good view over the City and we sat at one of the picnic tables to eat our lunch. There are plenty of explanatory signs... More

Beautiful gardens - carefully laid out to be fun for adults and kids alike. The wheelchair access walkways make this a great spot to meet for extended family get- together s as the elderly and children are all catered for. We have spent many family occasions here - and knowing how accessible it is for what are now our "oldies"... More

Mount Coot-tha is totally worth the bus/car ride up the hill. You will be rewarded with an excellent view over the city and can enjoy lunch, dinner or an ice cream above Brisbane while waiting an hour for the next bus to head back to the city :)
