A very large Botanic Garden set around Lake Tondoon with fabulous walking tracks amoungst huge established trees. Wonderful place for birding, there is also a cafe to rest and enjoy the wildlife.

So unexpected! I absolutely loved these botanical gardens. They were large, tropical, thought out and well marked. You could spend hours here. Gladstone is not the prettiest town but these gardens are the jewel. Put them on the things to do list when visiting

The positive and professional attitude of the cafe staff made this an excellent experience. The menu variety together with the high quality food at very affordable prices was a credit to the venue. The environment setting was the visit an extremely enjoyable experience. Thank you.
