There are several types of rainforests on display at Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha.  The rainforests include:

  • the Australian Plant Communities' collection featuring blue quandong (Elaeocarpus grandis) and brush cherry (Syzygium australe)
  • an exotic section with tropical trees, shrubs and vines from around the world
  • an Australian area featuring common and rare native species.

Works will be undertaken in the Australian Rainforest section of the gardens between 21-24 February 2022. Some pathways through this area will be closed and part of the Bus Lane will be occupied by machinery.

The Australian rainforest area encompasses the Aboriginal Plant Trail. You can see native plants used for thousands of years for medicine, shelter, materials and food.

You can view the Rainforests photo gallery as a slideshow. Alternatively, view the photos individually in the Rainforests set in Council's Flickr account.
