The Cairns Botanic Gardens, renowned for having one of the best exhibitions of tropical plants in Australia, is a lush paradise where you can explore the beauty of tropical plants, relax in stunning surroundings and learn about tropical flora and horticulture. The Gardens is divided into: The Flecker Gardens, Gondwana Heritage Garden, Watkins Munro Martin Conservatory, Freshwater and Saltwater Lakes, and Zhanjiang Friendship Gardens. The Flecker Gardens is the formal garden and houses several other smaller gardens. It epitomises the diversity of tropical flora that can be found across the world's tropical regions including plants from the steamy jungles of South East Asia, South America, Africa and of course Far North Queensland. The Garden is home to a broad range of plants ranging from shade giving trees and palms, exquisite orchids, bromeliads and ferns through to the bizarre beauty of insect eating pitcher plants. Once inside the Garden, visitors feel they have been transported to the Daintree. The Garden's signature trees create a green canopy guarding a plant collection that is interspersed with flowing paths and waterways, which wind their way through the leafy undergrowth. The Cairns Botanic Gardens can be found on Collins Avenue, Edge Hill and is open every day of the year. Entry is free.
