Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Queensland / Townsville / North Ward / Queens Gardens Townsville
Loosely divided into a formal rose garden, two hedge mazes, a rain forest walk, and a small aviary, Queens Gardens Townsville is a heritage-listed botanical garden at the base of Castle Hill. Established in 1870, the park was originally meant to be an important part of the city’s long-term plans for the development of the food and farming industry, with extensive plantings of hoop pines and black beans. Some of this original vegetation still grows inside the gardens today, representing some of the oldest cultivated plants in Australia. Extensively redesigned in the 1950s to meet the city’s growing need for more recreational green zones, the park includes sheltered picnic areas, public toilet facilities, and plenty of parking.
