A "mazing" place





We had Gardening Australia's exhibition recently and we happened to pick up some info on a great place which is virtually at our back door.
The Redlands Indigiscapes Centre is an initiative of the Redland Shire Council and it really is a great place to visit. Nature trails and laid out native garden settings where you can sit and have a picnic, and this great little maze of course. They concentrate on native plants from the local area and their nursery sells plants for $2.10 each which is very reasonable.
One of the trails features a 400 year old Tallowood tree, most plants are marked even the native grasses. There is live music on the 1st and3rd sunday of the month between 2 and 5pm. There is an information centre and cafe and the trails are open from dawn until dusk. For anyone visiting Brisbane we would highly recommend a visit the address is 17 Runnymede Rd Capalaba. ph (07) 38248611
