Redlands Indigiscapes Centre welcomes visitors back
The beautiful Redlands Indigiscapes Centre in Redland City reopened in February 2020 after months of renovations, only to need to close again due to the pandemic.

The Tallowwood Trail is the longest of these, and takes about 20 minutes to do the return walk. At the end there is a 400 year old (!) tallowwood tree, and a lake with an abundance of eastern water dragons and waterfowl.

Redlands Indigiscapes is a much-loved native botanical garden that gives visitors the opportunity to see wildlife in its natural habitat.

Look out for trees with arrows pointing upwards, they have recently had koalas spotted in them. And watch your feet for the gorgeous carpet pythons that call Indigiscapes home.

The reopening of the Redlands Indigiscapes Centre within COVID-safe guidelines will give people in South East Queensland the opportunity to get out and enjoy nature while continuing to social distance. Not to mention the opportunity to enjoy some of their famous Indigi-cake or a bush tucker scones.

The cafe serves a wide range of food and drink, some of which features bush tucker options
