Tropical Display Dome
At the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha, the Tropical Display Dome is a large lattice structure (geodesic) displaying plants from the tropics.
A pathway winds upwards through the dome building, wrapping around a central pond with water plants. This path leads visitors past a range of shrubs, climbers, epiphytes and small trees.
The dome provides a climate close to the natural growing conditions for plants that wouldn't normally grow in Brisbane.
You can visit the Tropical Display Dome between 9am and 4pm daily.
