  • These gardens are right on the edge of the CBD, easily accessible by foot. The spacious grounds were lush and green. Great walking and cycling paths, too.  more »

  • This place is a little heaven in the city! Very quiet and peaceful. We followed a guide for an hour who was really passionate and informative. The tour was entertaining and informative.We learnt a lot about plants/trees from different places around the world, and more about the history of Brisbane too. We would definitely recommend it!
  • Free living, at its very, inner-city best! love life and feel free here. Peace out brizy. Thank you..
  • If you enjoy the sound of whipper-snippers and ride on mowers amongst the tranquil trees and birds everyday at peak time, then it's perfect. Would suggest anyone picnicing, napping, meditating or relaxing recommend council choose more appropriate times for certain maintenance. Saw a girl literally run out of the way of a mower yesterday at lunch. Otherwise is a beautiful park!
  • It's really pretty and quiet at night. A great place to lie down on a cool night or have a picnic.
  • Amazing place, nice relaxing environment with lush green forest, easy connectivity tu nice walkway on the river bank and city centre.
