  • Average for a botanical gardens they do keep it nice but i like different zones of plant species they didnt have many here. Lovely war memorial Awesome that zoo is attached People need to stop feeding the turtles in the lake they swarmed when we went to the shore. I love seeing turtles but that concerned me Cafe was nice the established figs surrounding it were awesome Overall well tended
  • This is a real gem for Rockhampton. A great place to escape the heat - of which this place has the copyright on. Check out the Japanese gardens - it is so serene to come here either after a long drive north or south, or after work. There is a small kiosk that does sell some tasty food and cool drinks. Do check it out - even if you are just driving through Rocky.
  • Perfect for weekend stroll with my dog. Also a great place if you want to do some brisk walking or jog.
  • An absolute gem! The Rockhampton Botanical Gardens were a surprisingly good find. The gardens are on par with many capital city Botanical gardens and when you include the Rockhampton Zoo, they are well worth a visit. Great playground for the kids and plenty of shade and cool areas on a hot day!
  • I think it is a beautiful place to visit and would like to go more often. The mosquitoes have been really bad the last few times and chased us off. Also there is an area we went to walk through and the smell of the animal poo was too much. I will be going again though.
