Discover the Cairns Botanic Gardens

Posted in Location & Attractions @ Oct 24th 2012 1:16pm - By Administrator

If you can drag yourself away from the golden sands of Trinity Beach during your break, be sure to visit the beautiful Cairns Botanic Gardens for a peaceful stroll.

Located just a short drive from our Cairns Beaches accommodation, the gardens encompass 38 hectares, taking in fresh and saltwater lakes, lowland swamp, lush rainforest and
mangroves. Stroll along the rainforest boardwalk to the Centenary Lakes precinct to see crabs, turtles, waterlilies, mudskippers and the host of freshwater and saltwater plants and animals that make this unspoilt habitat their home. Plant enthusiasts will also want to check out the ultra rare tropical plants in Flecker Gardens: don’t miss the carnivorous Nepenthes plant.

After a relaxing stroll, you can pay a visit to the award-winning Botanic Gardens Restaurant and Cafe at the heart of the gardens. The perfectly located cafe is famous for its hot breakfasts and delicious waffles. Don’t forget to add it to your Cairns break itinerary!
