Fodor's Review

First planted in 1886 and largely destroyed by Cyclone Tracy, the 92-acre site today displays rain forest, mangroves, and open woodland environments. There are more than 450 species of palms growing in the gardens. A popular walk takes visitors on a self-guided tour of plants Aborigines used for medicinal purposes. The Children's Evolutionary Playground is an award-winning playground that traces the changes in plant groups through time, while the plant display house has

tropical ferns, orchids, and other exotic plants.
