As you wander through the 42 hectares (104 acres) of gardens, you'll see a magnificent range of native northern Australian and international flora. The plants are displayed in various environments, such as monsoon forest, coastal dunes, mangroves and open woodland. More than 400 species of palms grow here, and there's also a prime collection of thick-trunked baobab trees and cycads—those spiky tropical plants that look straight out of Jurassic World. Tropical orchids and bromeliads thrive in the Plant Display House. A self-guided Aboriginal plant walk points out the plants used for food and medicine by the Aboriginal people.
