We’ve been here a few times now and it just keeps getting better.
The different walks are lovely.
The sculpture gardens are really really peaceful and a pleasure to amble through.
I can’t recommend these gardens enough.
Sometimes a bit dry, but always peaceful and calming.

We were so glad a friend told us to go and visit the Bushland Botanic Gardens. There are a few walks you can do but we really wanted to see the sculptures in the forest.
They were excellent, very diverse and clever. Really liked the series of carved Australian animals, especially the Black Cockatoo and Wombat. Loved the infinity pool set amongst the palms with Brush Turkeys not far away scratching leaf litter into their mounds.
The open grass areas between are beautiful and certainly lend themselves for people to have a relaxing picnic area while enjoying listening to the many species of birds chirping in the nearby bush.

We wanted to get married outdoors and considered the garden. After a couple of walks around, we decided that there wasn't really a perfect place for us and depending on the weather, it isn't always lush and green. It's still a lovely place to visit with the family. Pack a picnic lunch and stroll around the gardens when you have a few hours to fill.

These gardens are impressive in that they focus on native Sunshine Coast plants and flora and really capitalise on the open location which is around 100 hectares of practically untouched forest. There is plenty to see and do including:

• The Arts & Ecology centre (this adopts a sustainable design and is worth checking out)

• Multiple walks (short and long, from 100m to 2km) including the Lagoon Walk, Whipbird Walk, Ephemeral Wetlands Walk, and my favourite the Sculpture Garden Walk (where sculptures from renowned artists are on display in a forest setting).

• Bird watching – many species can be spotted here including the King Parrot, Fan tailed cuckoo & black cormorant. There are also koalas spotted from time to time

The gardens are big enough that they never feel crowded and the location at Tanawah means you don’t get excessive tourists. I grew up on the Sunshine Coast and these are a fairly new addition (late 2001) and are very well kept. You will feel like you have gone bush! I will definitely return here to do some of the walks I haven’t done yet. I’ve never done one but there are free guided walks by local volunteers that operate on Tuesdays and other days from time to time.

There is also a café at the gardens and you can enter a QR code on your phot to use as a guide through the Sculpture Garden.
