The Friends of Sugarworld Botanic Gardens meet on the first Thursday of every month at 5.00pm, alternately between Hambledon House in Edmonton or Sugarworld Parklands Node Shelter depending on the weather.
Sugarworld Parklands is located a 15 minute drive south from Cairns CBD, adjacent to Sugarworld Waterslides on Hambledon Drive Edmonton and is open daily. The gardens comprise acres of sprawling exotic fruit trees, century old giant mango and raintrees, exotic heliconias and gingers, an all abilities children's playground area, fully fenced with separate BBQ facilities. It is an ideal place for family picnics and gatherings.
The Friends of Sugarworld have regular guest speakers, working bees, guided tours of the gardens and social barbeques.
