Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Queensland / Brisbane Region / Brisbane / City Botanic Gardens
Enjoy an afternoon in Brisbane's premier public park. City Botanic Gardens offers 20 hectares (49 acres) of rare and unusual plant life, including cycads, Queensland nut trees, and jacarandas. Tour Bamboo Grove, stand over ornamental ponds, and view the "Jemmy Morrill and the Brolgas" sculpture. The Riverstage hosts numerous events throughout the year, so check the schedule before you come. Weekdays generally provide much more solitude than weekends do.

Some beautiful old trees. Would love to climb them. But cant. Had some little market stalls there. Wad good to pick up a cold drink n something to snack on.

Lots of space to have a game of backyard cricket etc. Loads of shade to just chill n relax.
Absolutely fantastic place! Such a nice spot to relax and have a picnic. I always love visiting the markets there on a Sunday and looking at the flowers. Ive done a few photoshoots there too and will be doing our engagement shoot this weekend in the gardens. Just a great spot!
