I love these gardens, not matter what time of year I visit. My dad (a local) told me there wouldn't be much to see at this time of year (May) but we still spent a couple of hours there admiring all the beautiful colours and textures of the foliage alone. These are tropical gardens, not Cairns or North QLD gardens, so there are a lot of exotics but there are also a lot of native plants and a great Aboriginal plant uses garden too. Whether you want to find inspiration for your own garden, learn about tropical plants or just soak in the beauty - it's here.
! It is a tropical garden - mozzies love the place too. Don't forget to cover up or spray.
I also recommend you time your visit to include breakfast or lunch (or morning/ afternoon tea) while here too - either inside the gardens or next door at the Tanks precinct.
