Visited the botanic gardens with friends, had a wonderful time. Beautiful place to spend a few hours, topical gardens, cactus garden, herb gardens. Great view of castle hill, very instagramable.

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

A great place for all the family - quiet, beautiful and a hidden gem in Townsville City. Would recommend spending an hour or two here.

Beautiful gardens that are well kept. I went of an evening when the council had put on events (which they regularly do) and the atmosphere was excellent. Good to see these grounds being enjoyed. Just be sure to take mosquito repellant.

My teenage daughter and I visited the Queens Gardens this afternoon and were immediately taken by the beauty of these small but beautiful gardens. You can probably walk all around them in about 5-10 minutes but we spent slightly longer to enjoy the moment. Even...More

Quite nice gardens and certainly worth a visit. A great place for some solitude and respite from the tropical heat.
