“Awesome day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

The other day my family and I went to mt. Cooththa. There were lots of gardens and streams, ponds and waterfalls. We saw bambo there is a Japanese garden, rainforest garden, desert and a conifer garden. And climb to the top there is amazing lookout of all of Brisbane. Then after when you are hot go to south bank in Brisbane and have a swim. It was great.

“for lovers of australian plants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

The australian plant section is coming along nicely. This is the newer section and i take plant lovers from overseas here for a day out. You can walk for hours and take in the exotic plant communities as well and catch a bite at the cafe to fuel up. There are rides around if you are not into walking but you need to check times

“Stunningly Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

The gardens are fantastic - the restaurant in the gardens is not all that nice- expensive, disinterested staff, and the tables are left dirty. We had to find someone to clean them. There is another cafe at the top of Mt Coo-tha and it's really nice. A nice place for a day out.
