Plenty of parking and not too far out of the city. So if you are spending time in the... More

Brisbane has several Garden attractions. The Botonical Gardens are on of the best. Based at Mt Cootha, you will experience Japanese Gardens, South African Garden allotments, Pretty Flowers and rainforest. During different parts of the year, you will find orchid shows and other events. The gardens have a cafe, so you can take your time. My recommendation is a picnic... More

We had a pleasant time at the Botanic Gardens, particularly the Japanese garden, the fern garden and the desert garden. We had a laugh at the reference to the Southwest US plants as "Prickly Americans." The gardens gave us a good overview of the Australian flora we would encounter on the remainder of our trip.

It's right next to the Planetarium, so we wandered in to kill time on a Saturday afternoon. There was no staff at the entry or any where inside the gardens and we relied on the free map, picked up at the gate. While it was nice to see local wildlife (brush turkeys and water dragons) wandering freely, the gardens themselves... More

The botanical gardens are so relaxing. The air is so clean and is alive with various birds. The next thing i knew i was at the QUT university. I would love to have such a garden nearby my uni. I even saw 2 lizards fighting! Some great pictures were taken.
