  • Our family have a bench dedicated to my father in this wonderful place where each visit is different as it's so diverse. Beautifully maintained and fun for kids of all ages. Whether you feel like a lot of exercise or just a little stroll, there's something for everyone.
  • 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.
  • For a Brisbane cyclist, Mt Coot-tha is goal that is often on the "to-do" list... at last I ticked this one. It's a bit of a grind, but not horribly steep, so get those pedals spinning. Week days are much quieter, traffic wise and May is a wonderful weather time to do it.
  • Usually okay for parking. Magnificent botany, sealed and safe paths for short or long walks. Maintained beautifully and creatively designed
  • Quite a few hectares of unusual plants and trees. Has hidden little grass areas that are good for a quiet picnic. We went in the morning and took a Thermos and breakfast.
