City Botanical Gardens - Review
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
Great place to have a picnic as a family or with a date. Taking the kids out for an easy free day in nature is great. Plenty of opportunity for them to use their imagination, stretch their legs and have a good night sleep that evening. Japanese Gardens and nature walks are really pleasant. The restaurant/cafe is a good size and has a good spread of basic choices. The adjacent Planetarium provides a great opportunity for parents/grand parents to share and discuss the universe and our place in it with the kids. Anything these days that makes us parents appear smart in our kids eyes has to be a good thing. If your kids are like mine (aged 8&10) they’ll love seeing one of the 3D shows in the Planetarium, although the 3D scenes may make some initially feel a little movement sickness: well it did me anyway :). It definitely helped my kids look out at the stars a bit more rather than wanting their iPads. Areas where there could be improvement would include: * The Playground is okay but really needs better sun cover/protection: particularly in the heat of the day. * The toilet facilities could be in greater abundance; however, obviously this is a budgeting balance so it’s understanding. * Diversity of attractions. I believe there is a huge scope to increase/introduce/attract more bird life into some of the new outdoor green houses. Just food for thought anyway. Hope you have a great time.
I just love this place. Possibly one of my most loved place in all of Queensland. Love going here for walks or just to chill at one of the benches. It just has that kind of atmosphere where you truly appreciate everything around you - it's calm, relaxing and serene. It's well looked after and really clean. Would definitely recommend a visit. :)
This is a great park to walk around for a break from the city feel of downtown Brisbane. It is quiet and well kept, and entrance is free. There is a lovely pond dappled in water lilies - look for the enormous eel that lives inside! I also saw a kookaburra here for the first time, and a few other species of birds. There are lovely trees and grassy areas, perfect for relaxing and reading a good book. Definitely worth stopping by.
Great to have this luxury in the city. It's pretty quiet and peaceful despite the central location. There are nice places to walk within and also good spots just to stop and contemplate. If you haven't been and you like parks or gardens, stop by. Even if you don't think this is typically your thing, check it out anyways.
Great place to go and have a picnic, hang out with friends, or do some exercise. There are often sport classes or soccer games going on which are great activities, and it’s also a lovely place to sit down and listen to some music, enjoying the fresh air. Would definitely recommend visiting here if you need to relax or do some fitness in the sun.
