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.

City Botanic Gardens Reviews
Just Beautiful. Ponds and trees add to the serenity of the whole place. To walk around these gardens is such an excellent experience for all ages. It is virtually surrounded by the river on all sides.... more »
Very handy location to this great park area located beside the river. Some small markets including coffee was very well received by all that attended. Lots to see and do, for free. more »
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. Was a wedding going on while there and thought i was a beautiful back drop for such an event. Beautiful flowers in bloom too. 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!
