Beautiful garden and excellent customer service. We spent an excellent and enjoable day wandering around this garden. There are various sections, each focussing on a specific theme, e.g. tropical, australian bush etc.

Customer service reps have been wonderful, knowledgeable and patient in explaining the various sights and what to do.
The onsite restaurant is very slow in serving on the day we visited. All in all, an enjoyable and fun outing.

Tip: Best to visit early as parking in the garden is limited

Now these are botanic gardens. Not like the rubbish ones we saw at the Gold Coast.
You could easily spend hours at Mt Cootha. Well marked paths, great descriptions, plenty of variety, just overall excellent presentation. You could even bring the lunch along and do a BBQ.

This was the highlight of our day visit to the mountain. A lovely quiet place with plenty of interest to see. As well there was an Adventure Cache to be found! YMMV

A real 'must visit' especially if you are not a local to Brisbane. The gardens are just immaculate. Definitely a lot to see. You can take a packed picnic and enjoy some skyline views. I'd also recommend a visit to the planetarium while you're there!

Aside of the greenery - I especially liked spotting the many (large) lizards, water birds in the ponds and the flying foxes. The Mr Whippy stand was also a fave as as a water and icecream thirst-quencher. I travelled around the gardens via hire scooter (I walked a few kilometres too!).

In hindsight, we should have visited on a cooler day, more hours to enjoy all that the park has to offer and yet we managed to view a wide selection of flora thanks to our excellent guide who knew all the short-cuts and shaded areas. We were surprised to learn that the gardens only officially opened in 1976 and yet are now recognised as Australia's premier subtropical botanical gardens. There is simply so much to see and enjoy that more than a visit is warranted. We did managed to enjoy the plants of the Tropical Dome, Fern House, Cactus House, Japanese Gardens, Kitchen Garden, Rainforest, Lagoons and Bamboo Grove and other sections. Great walking trails throughout to suit virtually all abilities but we did get a taxi to the lookout. Wonderful volunteer guide accompanied us and regaled us with her sublime knowledge of the various plants.

Absolutely stunning and need to return to see more! All the gardens were filled with colour and amazing wildlife at every corner. Totally recommend and comfortable pathways throughout.

The Botanic Gardens at the base of Mt Coot-tha has beautiful plants from around Australia and around the world. The gardens specialise in sub-tropical plants, which grow profusely in Brisbane's favourable climate. Visitors can join guided tours at 11 and 1 pm. Please check on availability.
