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. The friend`s centre at the garden has also recently started freshly grown ground coffee, loose leaves and gluten free treats for its visitors. The Botanical Gardens are considered as a heritage by the Australian Government; therefore they introduce new activities to keep the public involved.

Gold Coast Regional Botanical Gardens, Benowa Reviews
Expansive and serene open space with beautifully landscaped and well maintained garden, quietly located beside the Nerang river and golf course. There is also a kids playground which will keep kids happy for a of couple hour. The lake in the centre of the garden is bustling with wildlife: fish, birds and insects. Perfect place to take postcard photos and spend half day picnic or relaxing by the lake.
Great place to walk the dog close to suburbia. Generally the park has more smaller dogs, but there are larger dogs as well. Owners and dogs are friendly. The sea water pond and man made beach is great for the dogs to safely swim without fear of bull sharks, boats or stingrays. Plenty of bait fish for the dogs to chase. There are a few seats to sit on. childrens playground a walking area separate from the dog park. Public toilets and drinking fountains, dog poo bins. The Japanese garden and ponds are lovely and there is often yoga etc you can join. There is plenty of parking though it does get mildly busy in weekends. There is also coffee, cakes and ice cream on site. It is a very short distance from Benowa gardens shopping centre if you want more variety
Sunny one day, perfect the next. Hard to find a nicer location anywhere in the world. The beaches are perfect, the people are really friendly and there is so much to see and do. A must go to location
Fantastic place for everyone from kids to oldies. Easy walking, plenty of birdlife and native plants & trees. At the moment with 'Spring in the air' plenty of new life with baby water hens and new flower buds appearing
Better than I expected. Very well kept. You can tell that the grounds keep are very proud of their gardens. Lovely pond /lake in the centre with drive around and parking all around. Lots of room for picnics. Shady and sunny spots. Dog friendly areas. Enjoy! 😃
