A Walk Among the Mangroves
Located right on the Brisbane River, the City Botanic Gardens are a lush greenspace filled with unusual specimens and well-tended paths that welcome joggers, strollers, office workers on lunch, and anyone needing a break. Ornamental ponds, a bamboo grove, and flocks of birds offer plenty to enjoy, but the most unusual feature is the mangrove boardwalk, a somewhat rickety floating wooden path that leads out into the river through a mangrove. The floating boardwalk will get your shoes wet when water sloshes over the edges, but it's a one-of-a-kind chance to get up close to the mangroves. If you can't make it in person, check out the virtual tour on the official website.
