As I said walking, it was a slow waddle, but this gave me more time to capture the beauty of the perfectly arranged gardens. Between the amazing array of greenery & every colour imaginable of flowers. All the little creatures darting back into the garden when you were to close. Couples relaxing, workers by the many,eating their lunch. I give... More

I love gardens, and this one is amazing! Beautifully laid out with a nice wide variety of plants. This makes for a great morning stroll. The only problem is that you'll be sad you can't possibly go down every path in one visit. Highly recommend!

This garden in the centre of Brisbane is great for a casual visit, a walk through on the way to work, or taking a break from work, showing off our city to guests, and a perfect spot for a picnic. With easy access (it's next to the station) it's one of the best spots for a relaxing stroll in picture... More
