There are some really beautiful gardens here. The Japanese garden especially was my favourite. It's really well maintained and I didnt see any litter as we were walking around.

If you are heading up to Mt Coot-tha it is worth stopping at this smallish botanic garden. We enjoyed the viewing the local flora. Nicely laid out.

The newly refurbished Botanic Gardens are a great spot for all the family to visit, even on a hot day, as the foliage cover of many large trees gives numerous shaded and lawned areas to play or just wander and relax.

We took our visitors to these beautiful Gardens and enjoyed the guided tour that is available daily at various times. The tour was both informative and for the gardens lovers a delightful way to enjoy the day. Then lunch at the Cafe and be amused by the water dragons will come visiting.

nice gardens, plenty of space for kids to run around, secluded spots to relax, Japanese garden is a must see. I also love the Bonsai display. Food there is ordinary and relatively expensive. Personally I prefer to bring my own picnic.
