Tamborine Mountain Regional Botanic Gardens launches app to assist visitors
Tamborine Mountain Regional Botanic Gardens in the Scenic Rim has launched an app for both Apple and Android smartphones that helps guide visitors through the gardens and adds an extra layer of enjoyment.
Botanic Gardens President Denby Browning said: “We believe we are the first regional botanic garden in Australia to provide a free app for our visitors.”
The Gardens committee commissioned a developer team late last year to design an interactive map and information guide. The app includes details of all pathways, gardens and contemplative sites, information about the early days of the Gardens and offers a number of activities including “I Spy” and bird-watching opportunities. It also provides music while visitors are relaxing at any one of the nine contemplative sites.
