Bush Garden Trail

The “Bush Garden” is a beautiful restored riverside forest along the Ross River in Mundingburra, Townsville. To visit the Bush Garden, drive to the end of Thompson Street or the end of O’Reilly Street.

At the Bush Garden you can stroll along the shady paths, spot native birds, enjoy river views and discover a fascinating variety of native trees and other points of interest. These are marked by new numbered posts with QR codes, installed in April 2021 by CDTLI with support from Townsville City Council.

As you explore this area, you can scan each QR code with your phone to see detailed information. You can also download a Bush Garden Trail flyer and select information sheets from the list below.
