Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Queensland / Cairns Region / Cairns / Botanical Gardens
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.
Botanical Gardens reviews
Great way to spend half a day, good walks, good cafe and interesting environment. Best of all it is free and a two dollar bus ride to reach so a bargain!

Very impressive. Exceptional staff, friendly and very helpful. The gardens are very well maintained and easy to walk around with plenty of well defined paths. Lots of signs indicating plant types. Cafe is great, set in amazing location, very peaceful with lots of room. Highly recommended.
On Collins Avenue between Edge Hill and Sheridan Street. A free entry park with plenty of free parking and many ♿️ wheelchair parks. Open 7 days a week from 07:30 to 17:30 with a restaurant and Cafe both open 07:00 to 16:30. This is a beautiful gardens to visit. There are water fountains stationed around the park and plenty of benches to rest at. Suggest you carry a water bottle, insect repellent during the wetter months and wear a good broad brim hat. You could easily spend an hour or two here.
