First Destination of the Trip: Indigiscapes
The Redlands IndigiScapes Centre is Redland City Council’s environmental education centre. It was opened in February 2000 and has botanic gardens featuring only plants locally native to the Redlands area. The gardens have many different themes and provide living examples of how you can use native plants in landscaping in your own back yard. Many of the plants are available for sale through our main monthly plant sale, and in smaller number whenever we are open.
Everyone Excited and Listening to our Tour Guide
