Guided walks

Take a free volunteer guided walk to learn about the plants and features of the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mt Coot-tha. Walks are taken at a gentle pace for about one hour. Volunteers are always welcome and this is a great way to share your interest in plants and the gardens with others.

Walk information and bookings

Walks leave twice daily from the Information Centre at 11am and 1pm, Monday to Saturday. Walks are not available Sundays or public holidays.

It is not necessary for individuals or small groups to book these walks. Large groups or groups with a special interest can make a booking for a customised tour by phoning 07 3403 2535.
