The city near closes on weekends so a great time to visit the gardens. A good hour or two wandering around. Main thing is there is limited food and drinks to buy so bring your own or drink some bubbler water and wait to you...More

This is a lovely place to wander for a few hours or "time out" on the grass. You would have no idea that you are meters from the centre of Brisbane.

Didn't know there were markets on Sunday morning as I wasn't there on Sunday. Disappointed! Beautiful gardens though and a wonderful tour when we were there.Well situated in the city. Great spot to relax and contemplate your luck at being there!

Really interesting tour that explains early history of Brisbane, unusual trees plus we got to see up close a water dragon (lizard), an eel and some curlews (birds). Beautiful gardens well worth a visit.

The Botanic Gardens are beautiful. There is plenty of open ground to exercise, relax or just play. The plant beds are well attended and looked after, and it's a lovely spot in the city to 'get away from it all'

We walked through the gardens a number of times and our grandchildren enjoyed the play areas whilst my wife and I welcomed the calmness of the area. The flower beds are amazing and the trees enthralling. Well done to the team who maintains the area.

This place has got to be the lungs of Brisbane as you can certainly draw breath when walking around & admiring the different plants, gardens & wildlife. Although the CBD is so close it is not really apparent. The views from the paths along the...More

You can sit nearly anywhere. But I believe there may be some tables overlooking the river.
