Hervey Bay Botanical Gardens, Hervey Bay Reviews

  • Enjoyed a good couple of hours inside the Hervey Bay Botanic Gardens - the bats which live here are something to behold, and as well as close encounters with ducks, turtles and strange creepy crawlies I was mighty impressed by this little red flower which has been created to look like a brilliant red flying machine. God truly is wonderful, and He has a sense of humour too - so if, like myself, you find yourself using the excellent car wash over the road from the Gardens entrance, to wash the bat poop from your duco before the acid leaves it's mark, hey - the critters spend all day upside down, and they don't have any coins to use the wash facilities, so we have the last laugh! On the car wash kudos to our brothers and sisters North of the Queensland border who have signs up encouraging customers to shammy the vehicle before leaving - unlike our southern city bays which post warnings about not bringing any cloths or buckets from outside. Pretty stark huh?

  • The orchid house is truly mind-blowing! Wonderful talk given by staff members. Thank you.

  • Volunteer staff very informative and friendly. Small 2.50 charge look aroung orchid house plus a coffee. Gardens are spectacular. Lots parking.

  • Very well maintained and have never seen any vandalism. Multiple culture specific gardens and beautiful park areas to sit or eat.

  • It's good for a place to look around and relax. I would recommend going there K.
