“Gotta go on the train”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

The pretend train was just what 2 septegenerians needed to see all the parks aspects, but the driver turned out to have a most interesting knowledge of the history and variety of plants and trees in the park.
The Macaque monkey display was quite humerous and very well presented.
Some of the plants were outstanding and substantially different from most of the plants of Queensland. The orchids were exceptional. Its cheap and well worth a stroll through the park and even a ride on the train. The kids will love it

“Monkies from Japan In the enclosure had just had a new baby!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

And a great park that Sakia and I catch the free Tiger bus to. And the summer the cafe opens with heaps of free papers to read. It is always a lovely spot. The design centre on the South West edge is beautiful too.
