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.

  • Very impressive. Exceptional staff, friendly and very helpful. The gardens are very well maintained and easy to walk around with plenty of well defined paths. Lots of signs indicating plant types. Cafe is great, set in amazing location, very peaceful with lots of room. Highly recommended.
  • Very beautiful gardens! My wife and I did a macro photography tour around the gardens and saw a ton of cool little bugs and creatures as well as beautiful plants. It was not crowded when we were but it was a weekday morning. Definitely worth a visit.
