“Bug-eating plants!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Whenever I'm around Botanic Park, or the museum, I do like to take a quick turn around the Tropical Ravine. The outside looks like a giant greenhouse. Inside you'll find a balcony walkway looking down upon a variety of weird and wonderful plants. There are big orange fish in murky pools. My favourites are the pitcher plants; they look like jugs and live by trapping and digesting flies. Fantastic things to see.
Opens at 10am, closing time varies seasonally.

“A natural beauty”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

It's green and inside so always available and has kind of a 50's feel to it. Not that I would know-just sayin
