“Genteel and great for bird watchers”

Bundaberg Botanic Gardens
Ranked #4 of 45 things to do in Bundaberg
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 4, 2013

A lovely stroll through walkways and trees. The boardwalks through the pond area are good and there is plenty of birdlife. I am not a birdwatcher, but the visual image of a single white bird with a very long neck standing on an isolated rock in the centre of the water with a mirror image reflected in the water was a good one.
There is also a Chinese Garden and a wedding party were having photographs taken in front of the pagoda when I was there. And the elegant old home at the bottom of the gardens which is now a museum, though closed when I was there, is lovely to wander around. Boys were playing an informal game of cricket on the back lawn. All in all, some visually nice images.

These gardens are a great place to bring visitors. We always bring our guests here, and I make them all go on the cane train ride. There is loads to do in the gardens. Several museums, a cafe and a huge pond with ducks, turtles and water dragons to feed. You can buy a bag of duck food from the cafe for 50c, and last time I was there the ducks were eating it out of my hand, which was really fun.

WE had visitor and decided to see the gardens. Took a picnic lunch and sat near the lake. Waders everywhere so we walked round the lake afterwards and enjoyed watching them all. Wonderful.

If not for the ibis destroying many plants and causing smells this would be pleasant. As it is the displays are such that we do take visitors there and also take them through the Hinkler museum.

What a lovely spot this is to settle and have a bite to eat; though we ate from our chilly bin there is a restaurant on site, however we choose to sit in the shade of mature trees and use the picnic area! The little steam train is a great wee bonus, and we were disappointed only by the fact hat we didn't have more time to spend there! Loved it!
