Fodor's Review

These magnificent formal gardens include an international rose garden, giant water lilies, an avenue of Moreton Bay fig trees, acres of green lawns, and duck ponds. The Bicentennial Conservatory—the largest single-span glass house in the southern hemisphere—provides an environment for lowland rain-forest species such as the cassowary palm and torch ginger. Daily free guided tours leave from the Visitor Information Centre in the Schomburgk Pavilion at 10:30; or download the free app for a self-guided tour. In summer the Moonlight Cinema series (www.moonlight.com.au) screens new, classic, and cult films in Botanic Park, adjacent the garden at sunset; bring a picnic blanket and a bottle of wine. Tickets sell fast, so plan ahead.
