Gold Coast Regional Botanical Gardens - Review

The Gold Coast Regional Botanical Gardens is a definite digression that you should take while travelling down the Gold Coast. Located in Benowa, the Gardens are at a close 10 minutes’ drive from the center of Surfer`s paradise. The Botanical Gardens can be explored in various ways. You can enjoy a stroll on the boardwalks around the lake, a children's playground, enjoy picnic or barbecue in one of the picnic areas, and even treat the dog to a play in the off-leash dog area. Guided tour is available by prior appointment. Enjoy the other highlights like smell and touch plants of Sensory Garden and Rose Garden. Take a walk between mangrove to mountain to learn about their local plants and marvel in the beauty of butterflies in the butterfly garden.

  • Popular wedding venue with stunning gardens, waterways and fountains. Highly accessible pathways, walkways and bridges for all ages, wheels and bodies. Bring a blanket or some chairs and find a nice spot (don't have to look very hard!) to picnic in. Has BBQ's and a few gazebos. Plenty of wildlife around. Highly recommended.

  • Beautiful place and so many little areas to investigate with little ones. Nice walk across the boardwalk and lake, a great park at the back for kids to let off steam. Lovely people at the visitor centre so friendly 😃

  • The youngest botanical gardens I have ever been to! It's going to be great to watch the trees grow and mature. I was delighted to find native bee hives set up in and around the stands of trees. The bird life and aquatic life is already well at home here. It makes for a wonderful day with kids, next time we are bringing a picknick and blanket to sit on.

  • Perfect place for family day out. Playground for Kids is good size and it has Sail shades so they do not get sunburn. Very nice tracks for kids on the Scooters, bikes or rollerblades. Clean Toilets, plenty of Parking On-site.

  • A slice of paradise - these botanical gardens are just beautiful. There is a great boardwalk which runs around the lake, and pathways laid for easy walking/cycling. There's a great covered area for kids to play, with a lovely shady tree area for BBQ's, with clean public toilets and water fountains nearby. There is a cafe there that has delicious ice creams and half decent coffees too.
