Hi, I'm a beginner writer, observer, and avid traveller based in Brisbane. www.facebook.com/leann.yan?ref=tn_tnmn

Seeming like a community garden crossed with a hobby farm crossed with a gallery, turning off frantic Beaudesert Road into Templex Nursery is like stepping into a rural wonderland.

Overlooking the western hills, Templex appears to be open every day of the week for most of the day.

Apart from being an inexpensive nursery for a large variety of (frequently rare) exotic species, Templex is a menagerie of poultry (including chooks, ducks, geese, golden pheasants), capra mammalia, frogs, and koi.

There are paintings and goldfish for sale, as well as glazed pots, including some very inexpenive bonsai trays. Jackfruit, off the tree, and native bee hives are also available for sale.

The proprietor is also an artist, and the grounds are full of his offbeat sculptures, most of which utilise recycled materials.

A beautiful place to spend a Sunday afternoon, and a wonderful surprise on industrial Beaudesert Road. A great place to let the kids run loose, being zoo, gallery and nursery rolled into one.

The proprietors are also the most calm and friendly-natured people you are ever likely to meet. I would be too, if I got to spend all day in a place like this.
