Botanical Gardens, Cairns

4.7
#2 of 16 in Parks in Cairns
It makes sense to learn about tropical plants while you're in the tropics, so head to Botanical Gardens to discover the flora of the warm, wet regions of Australia and elsewhere. Discover how Aborigines use plants for food, medicine, and clothing. Check out the collection of towering bamboo, or bird-watch around the lake. Take a stroll on the Rainforest Boardwalk to transport yourself to coastal Cairns before human settlement. A visit to Botanical Gardens represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cairns trip site to plot your vacation.
