Sherwood Arboretum


The beautiful heritage-listed Sherwood Arboretum sprawls along the river, having been established in the early 1920s. The gardens are unique in that they contain in excess of 1,000 species of almost entirely native flora.

In fact, the Arboretum is probably how Brisbane’s landscape would look had the early parks superintendents not favoured the ornamental and exotic introduced plants such as jacarandas, palms and poincianas.

During a visit, you will have the chance to stroll through seven different planting precincts, with flora from ranging from wet rainforest through to the leafy, open eucalypt and gum forest.

In addition, there’s a substantial playground for old and young, barbecues and picnic areas for those who want to make a day of it.

Don’t miss the 1974 ‘flood marker’ sculpture which stands as an eerie reminder at the top of the riverside ridge.
