This is the first time I've ever visited this place. It's been around for many years. Other than lots of trees and bushes there really isn't a lot to see. Rather bland and du.

Situated in the parklands surrounding the city centre, the Bicentennial Conservatory houses a rainforest. Entry is now free. There is a raised walkway, making it easy to do a loop of the forest. No stairs means this is wheelchair friendly. If you are going to...More
