Anderson Park Botanic Gardens

Parks and Gardens

Anderson Gardens is the largest of Townsville’s botanic gardens, offering 25 hectares of fauna and flora to explore. Wander through the collection of garden displays or find a shady spot to sit back and relax.

Centrally located in Mundingburra, the Garden contains fine specimens of tropical trees, palms and Pandanus. The World Cycad Garden, Grand Avenues and Tropical Orchard are of particular note. A representative collection of Cape York Peninsula rainforest specimens is displayed along with native plants and flora of the dry tropical regions of the world. Anderson Gardens were named in appreciation of the work of William Anderson, City of Townsville’s first Curator of Parks from 1878 to 1934.

Anderson Gardens is a quiescent beauty amongst Townsville’s abundant natural attractions.

The Gardens are open to the public between sunrise and sunset. Gates will be closed at other times.
