A beautiful place to visit, get a coffee and take a relaxing stroll through rainforest, desert, japanese gardens and fern houses. There is an interesting building which houses the the tropical pond creating a very humid tropical zone.
If you love gardens, this is the place to visit, great bonzia area. Within the grounds is Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium. (Open 10.45am -7.30). Check it out on line but I love it. Great shows.It is about a 10 minute drive from our front door. Lots of parking.
“This gallery will keep you enthralled for hours. Catch the ferry from New Farm to Southbank and explore to your heart's content.”
“Experience science, culture & natural history exhibits specific to the Queensland region, just 5 mins walk away.”
“No trip to Brissie would be complete without going to Southbank Parklands. Rich in cultural history, South Bank’s Parklands saw their first glimpse of promise in its post-industrial-period when World Expo 88 opened the area up for public visitation. Enjoyed by so many and seen as a valuable public space to Brisbane after Expo, South Bank’s Parklands were redeveloped for public enjoyment, and that lush inner-city oasis is still enjoyed by the public today.”
