Large botanical gardens with a good selection of specimens and forest types including some steep bushwalks with views back to Gladstone. Good bird life and kangaroos. Had a lovely cafe and Japenese tea rooms. Highly recommended.

So unexpected! I absolutely loved these botanical gardens. They were large, tropical, thought out and well marked. You could spend hours here. Gladstone is not the prettiest town but these gardens are the jewel. Put them on the things to do list when visiting
