Guided walks - City Botanic Gardens

Take a free volunteer guided walk to learn about the plants and features of the City Botanic Gardens, Brisbane City. Walks are taken at a gentle pace for about one hour.

Walk information and bookings

Free guided walks resume on Monday 9 November 2020, with social distancing measures in place to meet Queensland Government coronavirus restrictions.

Bookings are required for guided walks. Phone the Botanic Gardens Administration team on 07 3403 2535 to make a booking.

Participants are also required to register their details for the purposes of contact tracing prior to the walk.

Guided walks are unavailable from Saturday 12 December 2020 to Wednesday 27 January 2021 as the volunteer guides are on their annual hiatus.

Walks leave Monday-Saturday from the Information Kiosk (next to the Queensland University of Technology's Main Drive pathway) at 11am and 1pm. Walks are not available on public holidays or Sundays.

It is not necessary for individuals or small groups to book these walks. Large groups (10 or more people) or groups with a special interest can make a booking for a customised tour by phoning 07 3403 2535. Four weeks' notice is required to arrange a booked walk.

For walks for school groups, refer to our Education at the gardens page.
