Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens

Benowa, Gold Coast Area

Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens are a must see for tourists and locals alike. The Gardens are just 10 minutes drive from central Surfers Paradise, and are set on 31 hectares overlooking the Gold Coast Hinterland.

There's an experience for everyone - get up close with plants in the Sensory Garden, smell the roses in the Rose Garden, explore our native ecosystems along the Mangroves to Mountains trail, follow the historic journeys of the Yugambeh people in the Story of their Country garden, or visit the Butterfly Garden to learn which plants will attract butterflies to your back yard.

Fun for the whole family includes a stroll on the boardwalks and bird watching around the lake, a children's playground, delicious organic coffees, ice cream and snacks at the Friends Centre, or a picnic or barbecue in one of the many picnic areas. Free guided walks are available, as well as regular school holiday activities for kids.

Just 140 kilometres west of Mareeba along the Wheelbarrow Way, Chillagoe was once an ancient coral reef which has been transformed into spectacular limestone bluffs with a network of some 560 caves, while early volcanic activity has created rich marble and mineral deposits.

A serene and peaceful coastline awaits at Illawong Beach. Kilometres of sandy shoreline as well as off and on dog leash areas make Illawong Beach a popular choice for sunrise strolls. At low tide, the ripples in the sand stretch for kilometres, where small blue soldier crabs can be seen scuttling across the surface.

Childers

Childers, Bundaberg Area
Rows of red rich soil, green macadamia trees dotting the horizon, "hedges" of sugarcane along the roadside and a main street with history and heritage oozing out of its facades - history, heritage, arts, culture, food and wine is all here in Childers.
