Botanical Gardens, Cairns

4.7
#2 of 17 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.

  • In addition to the barrier reef, Cairns is one of the most amazing botanical gardens from Queensland. It is as if you were in the middle of the jungle. Super good care and over the view is free. There are several routes of trekking depending on your level. Awesome!

  • I would like to call it forest not garden. Most of it looks like a primitive forest. If you are interested in nature, it is worth one day.  more »
  • Highly recommended, must-see if you go to Cairns, is very great, immense, it is worthwhile to explore it on foot and return by taxi.
