Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens

by reread (follow)
It's Autumn, hurrah! The days now feel less like a descension into the fiery pits of hell and more like 'just hot'. With the (slightly) cooler weather more playgrounds are folly for your mornings and we recently tried out the Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens playground.



We ventured out on a weekday afternoon and the parking was aplenty. I took the stroller as the walk is a good ten minutes from the carpark, and if you've got a dawdler you're best to wheel over.

The grounds do have shade sails and we found lots of nice shady spots in the sand and rocks. Yes, sand and rocks! This playground is a wonderful way to fill your car with sand and also tests you as a parent to see how long you can refrain from shouting 'no, no, no' as you watch your toddler's tiny fingers almost get crunched between two rocks.

So if you're cool with a bit of sandy crack and rock play then this place is a great way to get your kids out into nature.



If you're looking for an accessible playground, this one ticks off a few boxes. The playground can be accessed along smooth, maintained pathways that are suitable for prams and wheelchairs and the onsite toilets are also wheelchair friendly. Water bubblers are also dotted along the paths making it easy to refill your water bottles when needed.

After the playground we took a walk through the gardens. The Japanese Garden has a beautiful waterfall, stepping stones and a pond with really big fish. It's also crawling with water dragons - they are pretty fun to spot as they try to blend in!



There are lots of other cool features/areas in the gardens. Fern houses, a tropical dome, a cactus and succulent house and the planetarium for older kids. There is also a café at the entrance which is open from 9am to 4pm daily.

If you need some time out from the kids over the weekend, want to enjoy a bit of adult conversation and a relaxed tour of the city, Brisbane Food Safari Club has a new experience starting in July.

In short, it's a beautifully maintained playground with lots of extras and is easily accessible via car or public transport so mums who would need to take the bus can enjoy it too!
