More Info

Relax as you meander through an oasis like no other within Queensland’s Central Highlands. The Emerald Botanic Gardens is a tropical paradise providing the perfect location for a relaxing afternoon stroll or an early morning walk.

Situated on the banks of the Nogoa River, the Emerald Botanic Gardens are the only botanic gardens located within the Central Western District of Queensland. Covering an area of 42 hectares (420,000 square metres) the gardens provide residents and visitors with not only a place to relax and unwind, but also an opportunity to gain further insight into the region's natural environments.
