The City Botanic Gardens ceased to be our cities main Botanic Gardens in 1983 and are now known internationally as the City Gardens - our states number one Heritage Park.

In 1983 all the functions of the Brisbane Botanic Gardens were carried on at the new site which is now known as the; Brisbane Botanic Gardens!
