  • An amazing collection of plants, many that we had never seen before. The trails through the gardens are well marked, and children enjoyed following the way markers.

  • A truly beautiful, well-kept botanic garden. A lovely place to walk through at any point in the day, and perfect for kids of all ages. Cute little signs indicate the plants in each distinguished area. Once you tire of wandering through the foliage, you're able to stop at one of the many facilities, including a prolific botanic library with very kind librarians.
  • Lovely place to commute with nature. Well maintained walking paths, vegetables, fruit trees and pavilion over looking the lake. Great display of desert succulents. Planetarium to look at the stars and a cafe to satisfy one's appetite. Highly recommended family outing and it's all free.
  • Went to a Brisbane City Council seniors class. Make your own mineral makeup. Interesting, fun and have powder, liquid and blusher to suit my skin. Brilliant. Good parking. Lunch in cafe after
  • Love visiting this place, so peaceful and great to bring kids to the playground. Lots of friendly wildlife such as bearded water dragons and native birds. There's lots of walking paths and a bike path that runs along the river. There's a cafe located inside the gardens and lots of water fountains. It's an easy place to get to by public transport as it's near QUT and is great to have a picnic at or to sit and enjoy your lunch in your break. Please do keep any pets on leashes though to protect the wildlife that live there.
  • We visited the Brisbane Botanic Gardens in late July 2022. It is a lovely area with beautiful views and great place to visit - a quiet spot amidst the usual hustle of Brisbane. Paths are wide and smooth and will suit a stroller or wheelchair. There a plenty of seats spread around, and neat picnic areas. Well worth a visit.
