City Botanic Gardens information
Brisbane’s favourite green space descends gently from the Queensland University of Technology campus to the river: a mass of lawns, tangled Moreton Bay figs, bunya pines, macadamia trees and Tai Chi troupes. Free guided tours leave the rotunda at 11am and 1pm daily.
Also in the gardens is a sculpture known as Jemmy Morrill & the Brolgas . Morrill was the sole survivor of an 1846 shipwreck on the Great Barrier Reef. Some local Indigenous people found him and he lived with them for 17 years before returning to the new European colony in Queensland. He went on to play a pivotal role in improving relations between Aboriginal people and white colonists in the new state.
