Flecker Botanic Gardens

The Flecker Botanic Gardens was founded in Cairns in 1886 achieving a gorgeous display of well-established flora within the grounds. The area is a tropical reserve of rainforest and jungle foliage, featuring specimens from Asia, South America, and Africa. Freely enjoy the pathways and scenic spots within as admission is always free. The boardwalk to Centenary Lakes takes visitors through the rainforest to both freshwater and saltwater regions where guests will see Amazon Pond Lilies and exotic trees and wildlife, possibly even a local crocodile. The Orchid House, Fernery and Plant Use Garden can also be explored.

  • Hike the nearby trails through the Mount Whitfield Conservation Park to enjoy expansive views of native wildlife and the Cairns and Trinity Inlet.
  • Go on the free of charge, guided tour of the Gondwanan Evolutionary Trail, which details the history of plant life prior to the foundation of the Cairns gardens.
  • Order a meal to go under the cover of the rainforest at the Botanic Garden Restaurant, which is open for a delectable breakfast and dinner, comprised of an award-winning menu of organic and local foods within an exotic atmosphere.

Flecker Botanic Gardens is located 4 kilometres from Cairns city centre. The Sunbus bus 7 makes several stops at Flecker Botanic Gardens throughout the day. One can also hire a taxi from Black and White Taxis to the gardens. Save walking for inside the gardens, and opt for an eco-friendly way to get there by renting a bicycle from venues in Cairns. To get to the city centre, regional buses, trains and hired cars are available transportation options. Cairns International Airport is the closest airport for visitors from far away to fly into.
