in SEQ

South East Queensland has many beautiful botanic gardens that you could easily spend a day in. Here are 10+ you really need to visit:

This subtropical wonderland, the largest of its kind in the world, sprang to life in 2001 on the site of the former Roma St railway goods yards
It’s possible to happily pass an hour or a day within the 56-hectare subtropical expanse that is Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens
These splendid gardens are culturally significant as the only place in Queensland to have had a continuous uninterrupted horticultural history for 150+ years
Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens is a hidden treasure atop Mount Tamborine, that features a diverse range of native & exotic flora to enjoy
Indigiscapes is a delightful arboretum where everything is native right down to the bush herbs incorporated into the cafe menu
In the heart of Redcliffe lies this unexpected lush green oasis, part Moreton Bay rainforest and part wallum (banksia) heathland, with picnic tables and a tangle of walking paths through its midst
These beautiful gardens sprawl along the river and were established in the early 1920s. They are unique in that they contain 1,000+ species of almost entirely native flora
The Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens is a fantastic day out for all ages – and the best part is, it needn’t cost you a cent
As you drive down the windy Riverside Drive and come to the entry of Kholo Botanic Gardens, you will be amazed at what you find beyond the front gates
