City Botanic Gardens
The City Botanic Gardens is Queensland’s oldest heritage garden, initially established in 1828 as the food garden for the new colony of Brisbane.
A living museum of plant collections, the Botanic Gardens display early heritage specimens through to present day exotic and native plantings.
It was officially declared a botanic garden in 1855 and is considered to be one of the most important non-indigenous cultural landscapes in Queensland.
It is recognised for its natural and historic values as, in addition to the plant collections, there are a number of significant heritage features.
Attractions at the Gardens include the Walter Hill Fountain, Bamboo Grove, Weeping Fig Avenue, Baldwin Lawn Playground, ornamental ponds and more.
Enjoy this tranquil green oasis surrounded by beautiful old trees, on the banks of the Brisbane River and just minutes from the city centre.
Booking sites are available for special events, and free guided walks are offered Monday to Saturday at 11am & 1pm from the Information Kiosk.
