  • Came here one early morning at opening time. There were not many people here at that time and I was able to enjoy a relaxed walk. The place is big, and generally well maintained. The Australian Plant Communities section is definitely worth a visit if you want to experience native plants; this section is also away from the crowd so it'd be quiet and you might have the whole place to yourself.
  • Fantastic child friendly Park with play area, BBQ pits, lots of trails & lots of toilets. On site restaurant. Would give 5 stars of they allowed children's bikes/ scooters into the garden. Very tiring for a small child to only be able to walk around the large & widespread gardens.
  • Very extensive and beautifully maintained gardens with a wide variety of native Australian plants. Everything is well organized and labelled so even the neophyte will find their way. Well worth the time.
  • This would have to be one of the most pleasant parks around Brisbane. During the week one can drive around inside the park. There are lots of well maintained walking paths, several good large shelters, a wonderful display of plants and flowers in season. Very relaxing, although it is adjacent to a very busy highway.
  • A great garden to practice some photography. There are guided walks a couple of times a day. My favourite spots are the Japanese Garden & Bonsai Nursery. Avoid the middle of the day as it can get extremely hot.
