Stroll lazily through this oasis of calm or get your kids along for an educational eco-tour, each of the 52 hectares of the garden is filled with innumerable opportunities to unwind and relax.

The best way to explore this beautiful retreat in the heart of Brisbane is to take a self-guided walking tour.

Pack your lunch and picnic in a shaded corner or bring your dog along to play catch, there is so much to do at the garden. Don’t miss the Herbarium and the awe-worthy collection of exotic and rare species of tropical plants and flowers like the Cactus, Bonsai, Ferns and the quaint Japanese garden.

City Botanical Gardens, Brisbane Reviews

  • The children's playground is amazing. I love how it's accessible for adults and children to have fun together. The shared swings are amazing! The colour combo is great and it seems to get used often. A great place for families to get out of the city and enjoy the outdoors. Great for my 1 1/2 year old but there were also lots of teenagers enjoying the playground

  • Brisbane City Botanic Gardens is a wonderful spot to relieve some stress due to heavy workload or study load. Have your own me-time, hang out with friends, or (date with the ones who love natural view. This place is also family-friendly and stroller-friendly. You may bring your children to one playground with lots of interesting things for them. Or if you love capturing beautifully arranged flower garden, there is one circled, outdoor garden in the middle of the Botanic Gardens. (People sometimes got their crazy pose for their photos, he he he). If you see tall bamboo spot, you better not take that way. You will find that-not-pretty-good smell of birds' poo while walking ON their poo. :D One more thing, as this place is more suitable for outdoor activities, do not forget to check the forecast. I once went there with 35% chance of raining (just to take some gloomy pictures), but ended up having heavy rain. (Only one bad luck, could not be generalized to all conditions.)

  • I love to walk through these gardens. Adjacent to the water, they offer peace and tranquillity in nice surroundings. Do get to the ponds, and the waterfront. Enjoy the view to the cliffs across, or the various birds encountered on land or pond. Sit down on one of the many benches and ponder your next steps. Also smell the flowers, of course... depending on what season you're here.

  • Never fails to impress. I walked through here early the other morning and was impressed by all the gardeners and other maintenance people quietly going about their business so that the Gardens would be pristine to all visitors during the day. The flowers are blooming and it is very relaxing. It's like an oasis in the busy city. There is also a great little coffee shop tucked away in here for all to enjoy.

  • This place is just plain beautiful. There's so much of it - whether you're a reader or a writer, a jogger or a someone just trying to get fit, a personal trainer or a physiotherapist... There's a spot for you. There's sunny corners and shady nooks and I appreciate the effort to keep it clean. I often stretch out on these benches like a lizard and study.
