This is not to be confused with the City Botanic Gardens located south of Alice Street and along the Brisbane River. The Brisbane Botanic Gardens is neighbor to the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium along Mount Coot-tha Road. The entry is free and there are a lot of interesting plants, trees, and even critters to see; so you can easily make... More

To top it off, there was a series of concerts given that day at the bandstand,... More

This is a great place to visit, rich in colour and the plants of the region. In addition, on Sundays, there is a really interesting market held there which is well worth a visit.
