Kholo Gardens Trails

Multiple Locations

Kholo Gardens is one of the best kept secrets in Ipswich. Established in 1988 on a historically significant site, it is today one of the most welcoming and beautiful parks in Ipswich. Featuring almost 40 hectares of stunning grounds, walking tracks and boardwalks meander along creek lines, through sub-tropical rainforest and even down to the banks of the Brisbane River.

Giant Kauri and Hoop Pine trees planted by early settlers tower over the gardens, while a nearby soothing waterfall cascades into the still coolness of the lily pond. Some rarely seen species of local flora and fauna can be found at Kholo. It is a haven for plant-lovers and bird watchers alike. Those with a love of Nature will enjoy the chance of seeing a Grease Nut Tree (Hernandia bivalvis), or the possibility of spotting a Tusked Frog, Great Crested Grebe, or maybe even a large Powerful Owl.

Remnant vine thicket merges into rehabilitated dry rainforest, a palm grove, Eucalypt forest and expansive open areas to provide an assortment of habitats for our local fauna. There is also a charming waterlily pond, complete with its own resident family of ducks.
