City Botanic Gardens

Alice Street, Brisbane City, Queensland 4000


The City Botanic Gardens is Brisbane’s oldest park, originally planted by convicts in 1825 with food crops to feed the prison colony. 

The park provides a lush green haven for City workers and visitors. The garden includes ancient trees, rainforest glades and exotic species, and runs the full length of Alice St, bordered by Parliament House on one side and the Brisbane River's northern banks on the other. 

Free guided walks are available Monday to Saturday from approximately 11am to 1pm (excluding public holidays). The walks are at a gentle pace and last approximately one hour and are led by experienced friendly volunteer guides. Meet at the Rotunda near the Alice St Main Entrance. 

Additionally, the gardens play host to boxing and fitness circuits, weight loss challenges, tai chi, pilates and more. Click here to details. 

The gardens also offer 10 outdoor designated booking areas that can be reserved for wedding ceremonies or corporate functions. The areas range from scenic lilly ponds, intimate small areas or large open grassed areas.
