Wow, such an amazing place to visit. A vast array of species within different habitats. A truly beautiful way to spend the day. Step out of the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy nature.

Here lies several TV stations as you travel along the mountain road. Can easily drive up to the top but car park bays are limited. The view of Brisbane City from the mountain top is simply breathtaking. You can choose to view the city in the day time or even the night time which is awesome. One can follow the... More

A really beautiful City. Great scenery, clean, tidy but to eat out or drink in Oz other than local wines, take out a second mortgage. The same can be said for all the places I visited all over NSW and Queensland. I was extremely fortunate to be able to have access to a private aircraft. I have many great photos... More

A great picnic spot, well worth finding an hour or 2 to explore. Very well established, and home to a large variety of wild birds, it's a very relaxing space. Parking is usually easy

We stayed opposite the Botanic Gardens and found it a very pleasant walk to gain access to the Brisbane River. It has a number of water features and many species of plants and trees.

Brisbane Botanical Gardens are so big you can drive slowly through most of the gardens, then park and see the bits that interest you the most. It also has a lovely lake with lots of birds and ducks for you to feed. The gardens also have a tropical giant green house, to walk in and around, well worth a visit.... More

The gardens are a pleasant place for adults to unwind and children to explore. Kids are well catered for, and we found ourselves joining in the fun with grandchildren. Gentle walking, plenty of variety, and for everyone, educational. A very pleasant interlude from Brisbane's traffic and activity. Perhaps not the greatest Botanical Gardens in the world, but certainly very good,... More

Mt Coot-tha is one of my favourite places to take my toddler. The Japanese garden is very special and a great spot for some nice photos. We enjoy feeding the ducks, testing the sharp spikes on the succulents, marvelling at the reflections inside the tropical dome, getting excited about the enormous bamboo and exploring the rainforest. The cafe is a... More

A little tired, a little old school. There is nothing wrong with the gardens for a saturday with the kids but not as a destinatipn outing. Good sample of local plants. For some superior garden design see roma st parklands.
