“Really Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

These parklands are a wonderful place for gardeners and non-gardeners. We went back twice because it was so inspirational and relaxing. I saw people simply sitting and enjoying the peace and quiet, wedding parties being photographed , people having picnics and familes playing on the lawns. The walking paths are easy to navigate and the variety of plants is a joy. I will happily visit this park over and over again.

“Nice park in the heart of the city.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Lovely gardens and peaceful area in the heart of town. A nice place to venture away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

“Great public space to enjoy sub-tropical flora (and fauna)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Rather than turning their old inner city rail yards into high-rise apartments, Brisbane got it right and made a huge public park. The plants are amazing, as I have come from a temperate climate and don't get a chance to see these tropical plants very often. Incorporated into the park is Colin Campbell Place a must see for the lizards as well as the spectacular plants.

“Romantic, Special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is a beautiful garden with winding paths taking you to different ecological regions of Australia. In one hour, you can get a feel for the flora - and some of the fauna - of this great country. It is lovingly maintained and an excellent place to take overseas garden-loving visitors.
