“Beautiful Gardens”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

An absolute pleasure to visit and can not believe there was no entry fee. Beautiful place to stroll around, take your lunch and sit in the park or eat at the cafe. Take a walk on one of the hiking tracks. Easy to catch a bus from centre of Cairns to gardens.

“Take the local Subus # 6A. It drops you outside the entrance”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

We took the self guided tour so we would meander along the trails at our own pace.

Saw many exotic floral and fauna indigenous to the island. Along with the birds and animals.
My favorites were the Ginger Bamboo trees and the many varieties of orchids.

“Great walk, lots to see.”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

The botanical gardens in Cairns are made of several different sections, and are enormous when you take all into account. There is even a walk through the forest in the hills that will take you to look-outs overlooking the town and the airport, but I didn't try them. I strongly recommend the rainforest boardwalk, it's magic. Overall, it's big, magnificent, free, what more could you ask for? Don't forget to check out the Tanks - there are exhibits there most of the time, and you might even find out there is a concert to your taste.

“Pleasant way to while away time”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Spent an afternoon here before going to the airport for an evening flight. Was nicer than I expecting, so a nice place to hang around if you have nothing better planned.
