  • Lovely to walk through the gardens. Well kept by all involved. Not too far to travel to from the main part of Mt Tamborine North

  • We got there at 9am so the car park was empty. This place really is beautiful and so well thought out, the different walks are brilliant and the attention to detail is world class. Our kids loved exploring and reading the different information signs explaining different facts. Great that there are public toilets and picnic tables too. Beautiful, peaceful tranquility in the rainforest!
  • A really beautiful spot. Tucked away not too far from the main tourist street of the mountain, the gardens are well worth a visit. It is so peaceful and they have so many different little sections to look at. There is sheltered seating, and if you’re lucky you might spot a turtle in the water!
  • Loved this botanical garden! Had the whole family with me! From a 5 year old to a 73 year old! Everyone had fun! You can easily spend 3 hours, with lots of places to sit and eat in. It is bring your own but a lovely place to visit.
  • An absolutely beautiful experience!!! I highly recommend stopping by to visit. It's a great place to bring young kids too! Keep in mind that although the majority of the paths are wheelchair friendly, some of the smaller ones have a few steps.
  • A great place to bring the kids or wander through the various walking trails that have interesting things to see around almost every corner. Young children would have a lot of fun exploring Sooty Owl's Creekside Trail. It was very peaceful and relaxing.
