Ben Bennett Botanical Park

Sunshine Coast hotels

Ben Bennett Botanical Park is in Queen Street in Caloundra. Its name has now officially been changed to Ben Bennett Bushland Park. The initial five-hectares of the park were set aside in 1969, to preserve representative ecosystems once widely found on the coast.

The reserve is a great place to study the beauty of the wildflowers, bird watch or just sit and enjoy a quiet hour on secluded seating, which is provided throughout the reserve. The Ben Bennett Bushland Park also features walking tracks which guide visitors through the vegetation communities of Melaleuca and Eucalypt forests, coastal heaths and one of the few areas of coastal lowland vine forest.

Sugar gliders, possums and owls are just some of the shy creatures that venture out at night.

FREE fun from sunrise to sunset Facilities Include: BBQ, shelter, toilets, tables, water.
