Tondoon Botanic Gardens is a fantastic getaway and day trip location close to Gladstone’s city centre. One of the best botanic gardens in Queensland, the beautiful, varied environments offer great walks through canopies ranging from rainforest to eucalyptus.
Watch the bird life on the lake and take in the peace and tranquility of this suburban oasis.
Feed the ducks or turtles near the water with the kids and play on the large grassed areas. There’s great barbecue facilities and amenities for a family outing.
Check out the cafe for a coffee and some light lunch or pastries while taking in the view of Gladstone Harbour.
One of the highlights is the tropical rainforest walks. Take a stroll through some iconic, mystical and lush overgrowth. This vibrant, green ecosystem is typical of tropical rainforests across the east coast of Queensland.
So take some time off and relax at the Tondoon Botanic Gardens.
