“A good day out for families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2014 NEW

If you are looking for a quiet place to take the family close to the city, try the Botanic Gardens at the base of Mt Coot-tha. The plants are fantastic and guided tours are available. You are also close to the lookout on top of Mt Coot-tha.

I first visited these gardens when they were relatively immature back in 1988. I returned in 2014 for the next visit & it was brilliant to see how they've matured......bit like me really!!

“A garden not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2014

It is close to the city and accessible by public bus; when reaching the top of the hill you can have a panoramic view of the city ( if it is not too hazy on that day). It is a bit hard for those who have weak knees to negotiate the slope there.
