Heaps of cool trees and flowers! We walked through the gardens on our way over to South Bank. Beautiful stroll, took around 35 minutes with taking a few pictures along the way.

This is quite nice place to visit and spend an afternoon here during summer. It is in Mt. Coot-tha not very far from Brisbane city (approx 6 kms). Plenty of shady trees and greenery around which makes the place quite chill even in a hot day. Remember that this small mount itself is about 300 m above sea level and... More

Went to Botanic Gardens to spend a pleasant afternoon. Hardly worth the effort. Had lunch at café which has really been run down since I visited a 12 months or so ago. Food ordinary, service poor and prices high. Gardens themselves are fairly mundane. Not helped by nearby roadworks for Legacy tunnel.

It is a pleasant place to have a walk, yet advice taking your own picnic basket as food and drinks are either commercial junk or over priced dining.
