Garden · Nature / Park
It makes sense to learn about tropical plants while you're in the tropics, so head to Botanical Gardens to discover the flora of the warm, wet regions of Australia and elsewhere. Discover how Aborigines use plants for food, medicine, and clothing. Check out the collection of towering bamboo, or bird-watch around the lake. Take a stroll on the Rainforest Boardwalk to transport yourself to coastal Cairns before human settlement. A visit to Botanical Gardens represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cairns trip site to plot your vacation.

  • We dropped in late afternoon and found the gardens both peaceful and full of life. The gardens are free to enter and allow people the opportunity to wander at their own pace without joining a tour.  more »
  • A friend of us who lives in Cairns took us to this amazing place and we spent a full day enjoying the diversity of plants, trees, flowers, alleys and cool air.  more »
