Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens

Kuta means "Place of Honey" in the language of the Traditional Landowners, The Turrbal People. Kuta, once an ancient forest, is now known as Mt Coot-tha and some of the trees -which the native stingless bees love- remain on the site at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens.

It is great fun for kids to follow the Hide 'n' Seek Children's Trail through the rain forest in the gardens. There are 17 activity stations designed to teach them about various aspects of the amazing landscape.

Creative mixed media sculptures along the trail make nature based education a fun experience.

Love this recycled kitchen appliance - yabbie.

King Fern Fiddlehead - food for the dinosaurs.

Did you know koalas sleep 20 hours each day?
