City Botanic Gardens
These beautiful historic gardens, established in 1855 right in the heart of the city, are Queensland’s oldest public gardens and recognised for both their natural beauty and historic heritage. You can spend hours strolling along the avenues lined with majestic bunya pines and Moreton Bay figs, exploring the rainforest glade, taking the Mangrove Boardwalk along the bank of the river and experiencing the park's many fountains and public sculptures. Free guided tours and bike hire are available, and shady nooks provide secluded lunchtime picnic spots. Visit the neighbouring QUT campus to see Old Government House and the Art Museum or watch a concert at the Riverstage. Gardens Point, Alice St.
