Trail information

North Coast Regional Botanic Gardens

The Gardens offer free guided walks at 10am on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, or you can just meander along five kilometres of formed paths. A map is available, but not essential as signage is good.

Enjoy the palm tree rainforest, mangroves, paperbarks, sensory trail, australian native plants and exotics from other subtropical regions around the world. Follow the Garlambirla Creek Walk for local stories of bush tucker, flora and fauna. Lookout for the short Botanists walk. A new glasshouse is also being built in 2021. See if you can find the nest of the satin bower bird.

There are lawns to sprawl on, a Japanese pagoda, benches, picnic tables, and a cafe – take the family. Or go alone, with your camera or a nature journal, and enjoy the peace in the this beautiful place.
