"City Botanic Garden - 20 ha of land." Botanical Gardens Tip by Jerelis
Botanical Gardens, Brisbane: 30 reviews and 55 photos
The City Botanical Gardens cover over 20 hectares of land and are one of the city's unambiguous showpieces.
Beautifully located on the banks of the Brisbane River and spreading over the gentle slopes and undulations below Parliament House and the Old Government House, the gardens are a peaceful respite from the bustle of the Central Business District.
The Botanic Gardens date back to the earliest years of European settlement. Long before 1855, when they were formally laid out by Walter Hill, the first Gardens Director, the area had been used as a vegetable garden.
