City Botanic Gardens

Brisbane City, Brisbane Area

The City Botanic Gardens is the city's oldest park, originally planted by convicts in 1825 with food crops to feed the prison colony. These gardens include ancient trees, rainforest glades and exotic species. They run the full length of Alice Street, bordered by Parliament House on the one side and the Brisbane River's northern banks on the other. They provide a lush green haven for city workers and visitors.

There are free guided walks available from Monday to Saturdays from approximately 11.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. (excluding public holidays). The walks are at a gentle pace, last approximately one hour and are led by experienced, friendly Volunteer Guides. Meet at the Rotunda near the Alice Street Main Entrance. Additionally, the Gardens hosts boxing and fitness circuits, weight loss challenges, tai chi, pilates and more.

Attractions at the gardens include Bamboo Grove, Weeping Fig Avenue, Mangrove Boardwalk and ornamental ponds. Special events are held at the River stage.

The City Botanic Gardens also offer 10 outdoor designated booking areas that may be reserved for either a wedding ceremony or corporate function. The areas range from scenic lilly ponds, intimate small areas or large open grassed areas.
