Location

The Noosa Botanic Gardens are a short drive from the hinterland town of Cooroy, on the shores of Lake Macdonald.

With beautiful water views over Lake Macdonald, the gardens are a great location for a leisurely stroll or family picnic. Drinking water, tables and shelters are available in the gardens and bench seats scattered throughout offer a place to enjoy the peace and tranquility.

Graded pathways make access a breeze and a disabled access toilet is available within the gardens.

The gardens cover over eight hectares and contain an abundance of native and exotic plant species. The variety of vegetation types support over 94 different species of birds as well as a wide range of fauna.

Other features of the gardens include: an open-air bush chapel, a fern house, a lily pond, large lawn areas with winding paths leading to picnic areas, a Greek style amphitheatre (a circular structure with rows of seats).

There are no barbecue facilities in the gardens, however there are two electric barbecues located in the adjoining foreshore park next to the boat ramp.
