Brisbane's City Botanical Gardens are right next to the CBD and offer a wonderful respite from the hustle and bustle of the city plus the summertime heat and humidity. The gardens feature very pleasant walking tracks and shady spots under huge trees as well as expanses of lawn where you can enjoy the sun. The massive banyan trees are especially impressive, as is the bamboo grove. The ponds near the Albert St gates are nice, with resident waterfowl and photogenic Eastern Water Dragons in abundance. It is a pity the Ibis seem to be moving in. I hope they rebuild the walkway through the mangroves as it was a great feature too. (It washed away in the 2011 flood.)
