Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Queensland / Brisbane Region / Brisbane / City Botanic Gardens
Enjoy an afternoon in Brisbane's premier public park. City Botanic Gardens offers 20 hectares (49 acres) of rare and unusual plant life, including cycads, Queensland nut trees, and jacarandas. Tour Bamboo Grove, stand over ornamental ponds, and view the "Jemmy Morrill and the Brolgas" sculpture. The Riverstage hosts numerous events throughout the year, so check the schedule before you come. Weekdays generally provide much more solitude than weekends do.

Beautiful gardens. Lots to do. Sunday markets a treat. Wrapped by the river. Just a beautiful spot. Just take time to enjoy it. more »
What was meant to be a beautiful garden for QUT students' to relax at now serves as a homeless people's hangout spot. With all the understanding of their situation and the fact that no one can kick... more »
Some beautiful old trees. Would love to climb them. But cant. Had some little market stalls there. Wad good to pick up a cold drink n something to snack on. Was a wedding going on while there and thought i was a beautiful back drop for such an event. Beautiful flowers in bloom too. Lots of space to have a game of backyard cricket etc. Loads of shade to just chill n relax.
Absolutely fantastic place! Such a nice spot to relax and have a picnic. I always love visiting the markets there on a Sunday and looking at the flowers. Ive done a few photoshoots there too and will be doing our engagement shoot this weekend in the gardens. Just a great spot!
We were on a time budget so hired a couple of the lime scooters. We even had to download the app and were very pleased that it took just 5 minutes to get set up and going - After 30 minutes we had experienced a great time going round the whole park / gardens which whilst better walked, when short on time it meant we could see it all. The gardens are lovely and the weekend market being on was great too.
Very cool wildlife here and tons of cool trees and grassy areas to hang out. Food trucks are at the entrance in the mornings when they hold events and they have tons of different cuisine options. Picnic events in the summer as well. Can walk or scoot on the path along the river. Well lit, walking paths make it very accessible for anyone and it feels like you’re in a piece of the jungle in a city. Highly recommend a relaxing day trip here!
Great scenic walk along the river. Markets on a Sunday. Alongside the Queensland University of Technology. Inside the CBD with a bridge to South Bank for pedestrians and cyclists. The park hosts beautiful Queensland trees. Worth a visit again and again.
