Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha

The Japanese and Temperate Gardens are looking amazing with the spring growth after the rain. The Bonsai House is in the final stages of redevelopment with the largest collection of Bonsai in Australia. The venue is expected to open in late September.

City Botanic Gardens

A wonderful floral display has been planted utilising ornamental kale.

Sherwood Arboretum

Well worth a visit. Some of the paths have been refinished after the flooding the area received earlier this year. Some of the trees are taking a while to recover from the inundation.

Event Suggestion

Have a simple breakfast the lookout mid-week so that you can park at the lookout.  Gates open at 8 am.  Visit the war memorial next to the lookout. Note the road into the gardens is closed on the week-end.  Book the BCC visitor tour guides for say 9:30am and do a walk downhill from the lookout.  Guides can handle 8 to 12 people per group so a group of 20 will need 2 guides.
