We try to visit as many botanic gardens as possible, if we visit a place. The Brisbane Botanic Gardens is again another nice example, with lots of palmtrees and large bamboos, and even mangrove boardwalks, along the Brisbane River.
I went over East with a stubborn mindset to see a mangrove swamp and the Brisbane Botanical Garden didn't disappoint. It was definitely the best mangrove swamp I saw (I checked out several). The swamp is on the river bank and a timber walkway has been built through the middle so you can check out the amazing way they grow. Look carefully over the edge for the tiny crabs that live there - they're everywhere!
Brisbane Botanical Gardens are locate in the centre of town. Orginally this was the main Botantical Gardens of the City. Since then the main Botantical centre has been moved to MtCootha on the city's westside.
The Gardens are located on the river and beside Parliament House and one of the University Campuses.
The Park is a favourite place for weddings and general visitors wanting to relax.
Also within the park is the Riverside Stage. Venue for many concerts throughout the year.
The Brisbane botanical gardens are a must visit, if you are in this region.
One of the loveliest tropical gardens I have seen, with many fountains and other water features. You can enjoy many hours of pleasure here.
i just loved it there...plants and birds i have never seen before!!! And its nice and cool there in the summer between the sprinklers! And lots of lizards... they are shy and hide themselves pretty good... so u got to be really patient if u want to look at one at close range! Unfortunately i had a pretty poor camera with me...
Isn't it great to have your university campus built in the same compound as the Botanical Gardens. Great place to relax and enjoy some peace and quite and sunshine.
In the major cities there are botanical gardens. Brisbane has these gardens as well.
I found it worth to visit the botanical gardens.
