The Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens are a must see for tourists and locals alike.  The Gardens are set on 31 hectares, just 10 minutes drive from central Surfers Paradise.

There’s an experience for everyone - smell and touch plants and flowers at the Sensory Garden, take a mangroves to mountain walk, check out our local species, visit the native Butterfly Garden or smell the roses in the Rose Garden.  Fun for the whole family includes a stroll on the boardwalks around the lake, a children’s playground, a picnic in one of the many picnic areas, and even treat the dog to a play in the off-leash dog area.  Guided walks are available by prior appointment.

The Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens are open year round, from dawn till dusk each day. There is visitors parking on site, and entry is free.  The Gardens are located off Ashmore Road, Benowa, opposite Benowa State High School.
