Orchid house is a great place to spend some time and take some photos. Well maintained, and a good variety of orchids. Being a free attraction makes it extra good. Shaded area nearby & Tables & WC makes it a good picnic venue.

The staff member was full of knowledge and a great guide. He made the visit so much more meaningful and I learnt a lot including about the ingredients for 'potting mixes' for orchids. His several useful tips will help me a lot saving time and hopefully improving the flowering of my orchids at home.

I have lived here for years and had never visited the Orchid House. I have now visited 3 times in a few weeks. It's a beautiful display of orchids and worth visiting on a constant basis as new orchids bloom at different times. The biggest downside of this experience is the very restricted opening hours, they are Mon-Fri 10-11am and... More

We were in the orchid display house a couple of weeks back during our days in Mackay. Holy smoke those are beautiful flowers. I love gardening and have always wanted to grow orchids but since home is Canada it’s hard to have them survive outside but here they flourish and the set up is fantastic. It’s free to get in...

A lovely little sanctuary to break up a busy shopping day in Mackay. Different plants are blooming at all different times so you can go back & always see other colours & blooms. I've always found the various staff lovely & passionate about orchids every time I've been over the past 5 years;) And it's free;)

We visited when only some of the orchids were flowering but it was still spectacular. The variety of colour and form breathtaking. Even the kids loved it. The house is set in a park area and is really a labour of love by a dedicated group of orchid lovers.

While the orchid display house isn't huge, it is a beautiful space. Best of all it is FREE so everyone can enjoy it.
