The City Botanic Gardens is the city's oldest park, originally planted by convicts in 1825 with food crops to feed the prison colony. These gardens include ancient trees, rainforest glades and exotic species.

They run the full length of Alice Street, bordered by Parliament House on the one side and the Brisbane River's northern banks on the other. Attractions at the gardens include Bamboo Grove, Weeping Fig Avenue, Mangrove Boardwalk and ornamental ponds. Special events are held at the River stage.

Where do I start! Absolutely fantastic tour! The places are all breathtaking, postcard quality views around every corner. I am in love with New Zealand now and can’t wait to be back.

Had the most amazing tour in the south island. I was nervous about travelling solo the first time but such a small group of awesome people made it a great experience and I never felt like I was alone!

The itinerary was great, we got to see so much and even the driving days were fun because we got to stop off at so many beautiful and out of the way places.
