Tropical Dome, Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mt Coot-tha Queensland Australia
Posted by suchwildlove on November 2, 2012
I spent the first few decades of my life in Brisbane but I don’t remember seeing this dome. Are these Gardens new? I’ve been away quite a while. Anyway, I loved this photo before I read the caption.
Yes, this is at the “new” Botanic Gardens, established in 1970 and opened in 1976. The City Botanic Gardens (est. 1855) are still there on the banks of the Brisbane River, but have been damaged by multiple floods over the decades.
My husband reminded me today that he took me to Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens the Easter before we got married. I don’t remember the dome, but he does. Your photo of it reminds me of the view through the glass pyramid outside the Louvre in Paris.
Thanks, I like yours too!
