If after all that sea and sand you’re craving a shady place to escape to for a peaceful picnic, you’re bound to love the beautiful Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens, around 10 minutes drive from our Surfers Paradise family apartments.
The award winning 31 hectare park takes in sprawling areas of dry rainforest, freshwater wetlands and plenty of lush green lawns for kicking back on. One of most popular attractions on offer is the famous Mangroves to Mountains walk, a scenic walking trail bordered by over 12,000 native plants. Elsewhere, you can stimulate your senses in the Sensory Garden, unwind in the fragrant rose garden, check out stunning native butterflies in the butterfly garden or simply sit back in a shady spot while the kids make the most of the children’s play area.
At the heart of the gardens, you’ll find an information hub, where you can pre-book a guided tour to find out more about the rare plant species on display.
