Discover our Tree Trail

The heritage-listed Arboretum, with its iconic avenue of towering Queensland Kauri pines, is home to one of the nation’s most valuable collections of Australian native trees.

This collection of more than 1000 specimen trees, first established on 21 March 1925, is spread across the Arboretum’s planting precincts, ranging from wet rainforest to open eucalypt forest. Today, the Assistant Curator of Brisbane Botanic Gardens manages this unique showcase of northern Australian trees.
