The orchid display house at Queens park is beautiful. Allbeit a small space, it suits it purpose just fine. Visitors will be blown away by the marvel of these beautiful plants and orchid enthusiasts will be content to stand and stare for many long moments at the specimens on display. This is a display which you can return to time... More

My husband and I visited the Orchid display house by chance as we were in the park for a picnic. The Orchids were amazing and so many varieties.

The Orchid Display House is the most substantial collection of orchids that you will see this side of the hemisphere and they are lovingly looked after by a dedicated team of people who know their plants! If you're in Mackay - take some time out to check this out. Don't forget your insect repellant!

This is well worth a visit if you like Orchids. Some of the most beautiful I have ever seen.There is a vast range. Best visited around October when they are all in flower. Just make sure you put insect repellent on before you go, loads of mozzies.!!

Orchid house is a great place to spend some time and take some photos. Well maintained, and a good variety of orchids. Being a free attraction makes it extra good. Shaded area nearby & Tables & WC makes it a good picnic venue.

The staff member was full of knowledge and a great guide. He made the visit so much more meaningful and I learnt a lot including about the ingredients for 'potting mixes' for orchids. His several useful tips will help me a lot saving time and hopefully improving the flowering of my orchids at home.

I have lived here for years and had never visited the Orchid House. I have now visited 3 times in a few weeks. It's a beautiful display of orchids and worth visiting on a constant basis as new orchids bloom at different times. The biggest downside of this experience is the very restricted opening hours, they are Mon-Fri 10-11am and... More
