Located at Mt Coot-tha Road, Toowong, it is about a 15-minute drive from Brisbane city centre. Visitors can also reach the gardens by car or by other means of public transport. Car parking is free of charge. However, it is recommended to reach the Brisbane Botanic Gardens by bus charter. Bus charters are efficient and reliable while offering competitive rates. The service is friendly and bus charters also provide on-board tours to places of interest.

Bus charters will also help you arrive punctually as the drivers have good knowledge of routes, road works and traffic delays. Travelling by public buses is alright but the buses can be overly packed or may not arrive on time.
