Immerse yourself in the beauty of art and nature simultaneously at Botanica - Brisbane's first major outdoor contemporary art exhibition.
Leading local and national artists will transform Brisbane's City Botanic Gardens into a temporary outdoor gallery from 6-15 April 2018.
Botanica invites you to walk amongst the majestic setting of the gardens' lawns, trees and lagoons by day and by night, as you uncover a diverse program of playful interventions and reflective installations. This free event also features a series of workshops, artist talks, children's activities and live events and will be open from 12 noon to 8pm daily.
