Apparently September is the best time to see the Ginger in full bloom, but October was pretty good as well.
Free entry! .. and it's definitely worth talking to the staff in the information centre - a wealth of information, and there is the biggest...More
We had a tasty sunday brunch, - good eggs benedict and great bloody mary's -- but it was spoiled by annoyingly bad service even though the place wasn't crowded. Far from keeping an eye out for customers needing service, the staff staff moved among the...More
A great place to relax and explore with so... many tropical plants. We learnt a lot about the tiny native Australian Bees and spent a long time in the "orchid house" enjoying the wonderful display of beautiful flowers.

This is a wonderful day trip to a location that is peaceful and full of "oohs and ahhs " The people that look after this place must be so dedicated and caring for the area saw many butterflies and birds..Definitely worth a repeat visit

Half a day spent at the Botanic Gardens and adjoining Centenary Lakes is ideal. Visit the Orchid House with the butterflies, and cross Collins Avenue to walk along the boardwalk to the Centenary Lakes with the Chinese Gardens. The Botanic Gardens Restaurant is known for its breakfast and waffles. If you are fit - walk the Red Arrow to Mount Whitfield or spend longer and walk the Green Arrow and you may come across a cassowary. Check out the Tanks and see what is exhibiting or catch a performance. These concrete tanks were built in WW2 by the Americans to store fuel. They have great artists from around the world perform there and the acoustics is fantastic. The last Sunday morning of each month there is the Tanks Markets. Also once a month there is Starlight Theatre in the Botanic Gardens. You could also take guided walks through the Botanics. Enjoy the beautiful Cairns Botanic Gardens.
