"Mt Cootha botanical gardens" Australia Things to Do Tip by bluesmama

  Brisbane skyline
by bluesmama

Mt Cootha is where you find Brisbane's Botanical Gardens. There are many different gardens, i.e. a japanese rock garden, a rainforest walk and the tropical dome - a big and very hot and humid green house.
We had the opportunity to see lots of wild lizards and parrots and when we had our lunch in one of the picnic areas we were suddenly interrupted by a 2 m long carpet snake!!!
As the name tells you the gardens are on a hill/mountain which gives you excellent views of the Brisbane skyline.
