We all know the benefits of plants, they improve air quality and have been proven to reduce stress.
Plus they’re pretty to look at.
But now, some plant nurseries are giving us other reasons to visit… ranging from unique experiences to amazing visuals. Below is our list of Brisbane’s most
unique plant nurseries – be sure to check them out for yourself.
Nielsen’s Native Plant Nursery
It doesn’t come more unique than this. Nielsen’s has an interactive shark and ray nursery! With several difference species you can get up close with, it promises a fun experience for all ages and doesn’t require a booking. There are also a couple of friendly parrots around, so those who prefer to stay dry don’t miss out.
49-51 Beenleigh-Redland Bay Road, Loganholme
Mappins in West End is hard to put into words but arty and acclectic come close as a visit here is really a visual feast. From the artwork dotted around to the unique pots, not to mention some very unusual plants, you’ll want to allow time to browse here. There are also creative workshops so you can get arty too.
240 Montague Road, West End
Brookfield Garden Centre
We think a restaurant within a nursery is pretty special, what better way to dine than surrounded by some of the world’s most beautiful plants and flowers? Wild Canary Restaurant is all about sourcing local, fresh and seasonal ingredients so their menu is constantly changing and promises some truly unique tastes. They’re particularly good at cakes too by the way.
2371 Moggill Road, Brookfield
The Plant Shack
This award winning joint grows most of its own plants and is again a real feast for the eyes, but what makes this nursery unique is the fact The Plant Shack has its own Welcome Dog and rehomes older dogs, in their own words to “entertain, befriend and offer a little therapy to any customers that enjoy the company of gentle dogs.”
