If green-thumbed gardeners make you green with envy, why not up your game with a visit to Redlands Indigiscapes?
Indigiscapes at Capalaba has no fewer than 9 Botanic Gardens on show. Each uses only native Australian plants to create different garden rooms – so you’ll find loads of inspiration to grow your gardening skills.
The centre is all about sharing the message of protecting the environment – a message that’s close to the heart of Ranger Stacey. After a long television career, this passionate champion of the environment has a new gig – promoting the natural wonders of the Redlands region.
If you’re lucky, Ranger Stacey may lead you on one of the guided walks at Indigiscapes. There are more than 14 hectares of wilderness to wander through – including 3 nature trails taking in everything from wildlife to wildflowers.
Indigiscapes has a great Discovery Centre too – where families can interact with displays and learn more about
sustainability and conservation. You can also do your part and drop off your recyclables to the centre’s new recycling station.
Indigiscapes Café has a beautiful bushland outlook and a menu that showcases native flavours. Try the scones with Lemon Myrtle butter, Davidson Plum jam or Finger Lime Marmalade.
If they hit the spot, head to the centre’s gift shop to pick up some take-home jars – and browse the store’s range of other eco-friendly items.
And before you leave Indigiscapes, why not drop into the plant nursery and pick up some native seedlings for your garden? They start at just $2.50.
Indigiscapes Centre, Café, Gardens and Walking Trails are open 7 days a week from 8am to 3pm. The plant nursery opens to the public from 10am to 3pm Monday to Friday; and from 9am to 12Noon on the first Saturday of the month.
