Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha Master Plan

Since the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha officially opened in 1976, the gardens have been recognised as Queensland's premier subtropical botanic gardens, displaying distinctly different gardens arranged in thematic and geographical displays.

Brisbane City Council created the vision for the 56 hectare botanic gardens at Mt Coot-tha and the surrounding area to embrace the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha as an iconic green landmark for the City of Brisbane.

To continue to work towards Our Shared Vision Mt Coot-tha 2030, a Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha Master Plan has been developed, outlining Council’s plan for the gardens over the next 15 years.

Master Plan details

The Master Plan identifies key opportunities and future directions for the gardens including:

  • development of the living collection
  • engaging visitors through world class interpretation and visitor education programs linked to the living collection
  • improving facilities and accessibility within the gardens
  • infrastructure upgrades
  • protecting and showcasing the gardens
  • development of our sister city relationships.

The Master Plan incorporates feedback received on the draft Brisbane Botanic Gardens Master Plan in March-April 2017.
