The Bundaberg Botanic Gardens has been given a face lift with newly designed entry fence signage enhancing the area's natural elements and promoting the attractions found within the area.
Bundaberg Regional Council's parks and gardens portfolio spokesperson Cr Wayne Honor said the signs were an important addition to the nature-based facility and provided a welcoming first impression to visitors.
“This beautiful area plays a big role in the region’s visitor economy and this new signage helps to promote all that the garden has to offer,” he said.
“When people first walk or drive through the entry they will be greeted with bright, colourful signage detailing all of the wonderful things that can be enjoyed in the Gardens.”
Cr Honor said the signs featured information about the Hinkler Hall of Aviation, Hinkler House, Sugar History Museum, Australian Sugarcane Railway, Café 1928 and Bundaberg Historical Museum Inc.
“The fence includes feature panels that take their reference from the natural landscape, using stylised imagery of the iconic Australian species, the wattle, which can be found in the gardens,” he said.
“The signage has been designed to be clearly visible and uncluttered, allowing visitors to quickly identify the different points of interest and experiences available when they step into the area.
“It's definitely a valuable asset to the Botanic Gardens precinct setting a positive experience for visitors from the start.”
The Bundaberg Botanic Gardens, along with its featured attractions, has enjoyed positive reviews lately through Tripadvisor and the Best of Queensland Experiences program.
In May this year, Hinkler Hall of Aviation and Fairymead House were highlighted for providing outstanding visitor experiences.
The Botanic Gardens has also been listed as the top fourth destination visited by tourists on TripAdvisor.
