The place is really nice to do several leisure activities, mainly for families. There is something for everyone and every age. Plan an all day picnic under its trees can really be a week end family treaty. If possible, bring the bikes for a stroll.

That's a great place for walk, or cycle, and for observe the nature. The Cerrado (how it's called this vegetation) have many species and burn easielly in the winter but have a great power to grow back. The place have a lot of events during the year so.

It is a large area where you can go for a long walk, but if you are expecting to see an orchid or a greenhouse with flowers and plants or other outdoor plants, you have come to the wrong place. There is really nothing to see, neither is there a cafe or an information centre. No infra-structure whatsoever!

The huge botanic garden is really a slice of the savanna (called the "Cerrado") of the Brazilian Central Plateau. It is of great interest to scientists, botanists, gardeners etc, given the profusion and variety of local flora and fauna. There are clearly marked pathways for you to enjoy the environment. The small research station not far from the main entrance... More

Mas lembre-se ao visita-lo que a flora local é o cerrado. Logo não se encontrará lá as robustas árvores encontradas no jardim do Rio por exemplo. Mas vale a pena, o orquidário de lá também é muito bonito.
