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.

ケアンズで、念願のグレートバリアリーフも潜って見ました。海も珊瑚もきれいでしたが、滞在中2度も訪れたところは、ボタニックガーデン！ケアンズ空港からも、市内中心部からも車で10分。 信じられないくらい色とりどりの熱帯の花々、蝶が、夢のように次々と現れて、園内に七面鳥が飛び回る。観葉植物として見たことがある木に、こんな花が咲くんだ、と花に巡り会えるのも面白い。虫を誘う艶めかしい花や、見たこともない花に... more »In Cairns, I also saw the Long-awaited Great Barrier Reef. The sea and the coral were beautiful, but I visited Botanic Garden twice during my stay. It is a 10-minute drive from Cairns Airport and the city centre. Unbelievably colorful tropical flowers and butterflies appear like dreams one after another, and turkeys fly around the park. It is also interesting to meet flowers that such flowers bloom in trees that have been seen as houseplants. I pressed the shutter enthusiastically to the glossy flower which invited the insect and the flower which I had never seen before. I wanted to study ecology and name again. Dinosaurs can also be experienced in the forest that reproduces the forest by the age of the Earth Genesis, as well as views of the Jurassic that are likely to come out at any time. All this is free! Parking space is also free! There is also an art center with a water tank next door, and there is a trek (both short and long) in the back Red Arrow, and I climbed it involuntarily. If you're going to Cairns, the sea is fine, but be sure to visit the tropical botanical garden!
