The gardens are perfect for delivering a break from the city - if you're touristing around Brisbane city why not have lunch here instead of the at a restaurant? Get something from the supermarket, pick up a city cycle from queen street, bike down Albert street and explore the gardens by pedal before finding a picnic spot (I recommend up... More

Worth to walk through the Botanic garden, very nice park with lovely walks and views. Loved the dragon lizards. A pleasant place to be in, especially in the middle of CBD.

The heat is unbearable in the summer, so it's great to find a spot near the river in the City Botanic Gardens that is cool, with comfortable bench for reading. It's great for a summer nap too.

A wonderful oasis of beauty and calm in the midst of the hustle and bustle of city life. You must take a moment to wander through this beautifully kept space and be both rested and educated.

It is difficult to believe that whilst wandering through this park that you are in the centre of a city. No wonder it is such an attraction to locals and tourists alike. Very well kept and always a pleasure to visit, another 'must' for those visiting Brisbane and want some leisure time
