Cairns Botanic Gardens

Flecker Garden is the Formal Garden of Cairns Botanic Gardens. It houses several other smaller gardens and is open 7:30am to 5:30pm every day of the year.

The Cairns Botanic Garden can be found on Collins Ave, Edge Hill and can be accessed by public transport from the city (Sunbus) or by car (ample street parking available), by bicycle or on foot. Entry is free and the Gardens are open from 7.30am to 5.30pm every day of the year.

Flecker Garden epitomises the diversity of tropical flora that can be found across the world's tropical regions including plants from the steamy jungles of South East Asia, South America, Africa and of course Far North Queensland.

Situated on Collins Avenue, the Garden is home to a broad range of plants ranging from shade giving trees and palms, exquisite orchids, bromeliads and ferns through to the bizarre beauty of insect eating pitcher plants.

Once inside the Garden, visitors feel they have been transported to the Daintree, with the Garden's signature trees creating a green canopy guarding the plant collection that is interspersed with flowing paths and waterways winding their way through the leafy undergrowth.
