Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens

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 and Gallery
overlooking the beautiful lagoons for those who just want to
relax with a cup of coffee and admire the view.
