One of my favourite places to visit on my morning walks is the Watkins Munro Martin Conservatory inside the Cairns Botanic Gardens. So, to enjoy this amazing place you need to get there after the gates to the Botanic Gardens are opened at 7.30am. However, since the Botanic Gardens Restaurant & Cafe already opens at 7am, it’s possible to get in before the official opening time.

The variety of orchids to be found at the conservatory is fantastic, and I never get tired of taking photos here. Below you can check out just a few, all taken with my iphone


Although the Botanic Gardens are still open at the moment, the Watkins Munro Martin Conservatory is closed due to 1.5m distancing regulations
