“Worth a visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

This is one of the few spots in Brisbane really worth visiting. The gardens are reasonably extensive and have a good collection of sub-tropical vegetation. The Japanese garden in particular is good.

“Pleasant environment for a family outing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

The Botanical Gardens are a wonderful space for families to get out and enjoy some fresh air as well as take in the beauty of nature. Also at the gardens is the planetarium which always has an interesting astronomical show available (charges applicable) - though can be busy during school holidays.

Great views of Brisbane from up here - especially useful to see the way the river winds around the city. Can picnic or go to cafe up here,

“Lovely day out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

You will need transport, as it is a fair way out of the city (you can also check the buses, I'm sure they'll go there). They're beautiful kept gardens and interesting hot-houses and a planetarium. If you're in for a climb, you can go up to the look-out on Mt Cootha afterwards and have a look over the whole of Brisbane.
