“Botanic gardens and surrounds”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Less than informative, very few information plaques, and not worth the visit. Too few seating areas.

“Great way to spend afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The plants are unusual, the setting is stunning and it is a great day for young and old. I really enjoy it just for lunch or to run off some small child energy.

“A magical part of Cairns”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

It is quite simple. When in Cairns and you have a spare couple of hours, make your way to the gardens. An easy bus ride from Lake Street and well worth the visit. There are public toilets and a cafe set amongst the lush tropical surrounds.

“Don't miss this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

A beautiful and large tropical garden filled with wonderful landscaping, great lakes, and fabulous birds.

Check out the free guided tours with local volunteers for both the plants and the birds.
