Benowa Botanical Gardens is the best place to have a picnic with friends/family or that special someone. There's a huge lake with ducks, swans and eels!. Birds everywhere (and big lizards!). If picnics aren't your thing, it's a lovely walk around the lake. Depending on what season it is you will see many beautiful flowers and trees. There's even auditory information posts scattered around the gardens. And a beautiful rose garden. The best thing is that is isn't like any other botanical gardens- it's nice and small so you won't get lost!
