For over 25 years, the Friends have worked in co-operation with our local council to share the achievement of a beautiful bushland botanic garden on the Sunshine Coast.

We are a voluntary, community organisation whose mission is to care for, enhance and showcase the unique 82 hectares which make up the Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Gardens.

Guided Walks

Trained, volunteer Friends’ guides lead regular walks on a variety of themes.

Come for a wander with us. Discover something new about our natural world and spend a little time enjoying the botanic garden.

Friends' Projects

Alongside their usual maintenance activities, the Friends always have a number of special projects on the go.

We're currently building arbours for butterflies, forging walking trails through the bush, participating in koala surveys, designing new guided walks...
