It makes sense to learn about tropical plants while you're in the tropics, so head to Botanical Gardens to discover the flora of the warm, wet regions of Australia and elsewhere. Discover how Aborigines use plants for food, medicine, and clothing. Check out the collection of towering bamboo, or bird-watch around the lake. Take a stroll on the Rainforest Boardwalk to transport yourself to coastal Cairns before human settlement. A visit to Botanical Gardens represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cairns trip site to plot your vacation.

What a beautiful place. It has something for everyone. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Cairns. So many wonderful flora and fauna. The butterfly sanctuary is great. Take a picnic or go for a nice walk. Just make sure you hydrate because it's very humid.
Great place to get to know the local flora. There are some interesting foliage that were used by the First people for various reasons. The conservatory has lots of colorful orchids, many kinds of ferns and pitcher plants, among many others. There is a public restroom and the gardens are wheelchair accessible.
