Brisbane Botanic Gardens
Occupying just 52 hectares—less than one-quarter square mile—at the base of Mount Coot-tha, the Brisbane Botanic Gardens opened in 1976.1 2 About 30% of the plants in the gardens are endemic to Australia, with the remainder providing a glimpse of flora from around the world.3
The Brisbane Botanic Gardens were created after floodwaters inundated Brisbane’s original City Botanic Gardens eight times between 1870 and 1974.
