Nice area to sit and listen to the birds. Cages were empty and didn't have birds in them, but plenty in the trees etc. Very green and well maintained. Little play ground for the kids to play. Overall very pleasant

This park is really close to the CBD - as are a lot of other great visitor sites in Townsville - and well worth including in a walking plan of the city.

This park has a fine display of trees and other plants of the dry tropics and rainforest, including some beautiful trees more than 100 years old. Unfortunately the aviary is now closed, but the park is still well worth a visit

A beautiful rainforest/tropical setting of moderate size and obviously well tendered. Only a block off the Strand and well worth a stroll.

Queens Gardens is just down the hill from the motel we stayed in. Lovely established gardens with a striking view up to Castle Hill.

Queens Gardens are right in the centre of Townsville, and are very old, with some trees dating back to the Victorian era. The oldest trees and palms are spectacular. We saw the lush rainforest section, a large herb garden, a cacti and succulents section, and...More
