The Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens is one of Mackay’s most popular tourist attractions.

It is home to a vast range of tropical flora from Mackay and the Whitsundays as well as other Australian native and exotic plants
which feature in five ‘culturally-themed’ gardens.

If you’re an animal lover, you’ll be pleased to find that the local wildlife has made a home amongst the plants and foliage, making for excellent bird watching opportunities and insect spotting.

Mackay’s Botanic Gardens also serves as a pleasant recreational facility featuring over three kilometres of walking and cycling trails and a unique Cafe, Restaurant and Gallery overlooking the beautiful lagoons for those who just want to relax with a cup of coffee and admire the view.
