Amazing place, quiet and perfect for photoshoots, a day with your loved ones or just a day with yourself surrendered by nature. The place has a nice cafeteria with a beautiful wall made of glass. Food is good and the place is clean.

If you love nature, this is another great place in Brisbane for a free experience. Just a short bus ride from the city. The Planetarium is also located here. Bring a packed lunch, the cafe is expensive for what you get.

The Botanics were pretty much an everyday Botanics but it sits along the river which is nice especially at night. A good place for a ride or a jog as well and a simple place to relax.

It's big, that's about it. Nothing remarkable about it. Pretty underwhelming when compared to Sydney and Melbourne Botanic Gardens (and I'm a Qld local). It's more like a bush/scrub garden than the flowers and manicured beds you would expect from a city botanic gardens. There...More

There's various zones to visit within the gardens with the Japanese garden and bonsai house a "must see". It's a lovely relaxing walk through arid, rainforest and cacti gardens. If not up to walking you can book on the bus tour. Walking tours can also...More
