Nestled in the suburbs of Townsville is a beautiful peaceful garden. You can drive around the loop road in a few minutes or you can park in one of the parking areas and enjoy the peace. We got out and had a stroll around the lotus ponds and then relaxed on the grass under a shady tree, so peaceful and... 更多
Not a huge garden but beautifully maintained and lovely for walking or simply sit on a bench under the shade of a tree and enjoy the plants, quiet relaxing atmosphere. Our grandsons enjoyed the outing and the opportunity to use up some energy in the shaded areas. Townsville is pretty hot so finding outdoor activities where cooler shaded areas are... 更多

We visited the Townsville Botanic Gardens earlier this month during our drive around Australia. It was a great place to spend an hour or so looking at the flora and feeding the birds in the pond. There were a few mosquitoes around too so we were glad we brought our repellant so we could enjoy the gardens.
OK, I am am keen gardener and love North Queensland trees. Anderson Park was the place to see them. A really helpful gardener helped me out to find some of the trees I was keen to see. Nice place for a walk once you want a change from the Strand.
A fantastic place to go for a peaceful walk - Along the magical Ross River, cockatoos everywhere and beautiful trees and flowers of all kinds. Must visit!
Brilliant park in the middle of the town, however, completely empty of people and life. Wish we had the dog with us for a run around. Beautiful grounds, great gardens - no bathrooms at all (which would increase people wanting to visit the park for picnic's). worth a walk/drive around
For its size the park has good selection of trees and shrubs and plants nicely arranged around the area, a good frangipani garden with native species also they have a jade creeper which is quite rare.
