Bundaberg Botanic Gardens, Bundaberg

4.3
#2 of 10 in Parks in Bundaberg
Take a colorful walk through Bundaberg Botanic Gardens, noted for a huge variety of vibrant water lilies growing along a tranquil lagoon. Wooden walkways take visitors through a number of lush areas spread across this large park, which is home to over 100 species of birds. Bring a picnic and relax under a big tree, or enjoy an exciting ride on the steam-powered train, which winds its way around the gardens and along the lagoon. Arguably the park’s most notable feature is the Hinkler Hall of Aviation, celebrating the achievements of aviator Bert Hinkler, the first person to fly solo from England to Australia. This museum includes an exhibition hall with multimedia displays, as well as a flight simulator, theater, and five historic aircraft.

  • Beautiful area still being developed. However there are many beautiful areas and a wonderful cafe to take a break in
  • Gardens were suited to a family outing. Some areas closed for maintenance / construction. Kids will enjoy the steam train ride. Cafe is good and has a kids menu and gluten-free options. Check out the Hinkler Hall of Aviation while you are there.
