Brisbane City Botanic Gardens were established in 1855 on a point known as Gardens Point on the Brisbane River. The gardens area has frontages on both Alice Street and George Street. The 20 hectares site was selected as a public garden in 1828 by Charles Fraser. It was once called "Queens Park". This photo also shows the Brisbane River along what is now Eagle Street with Customs House in the distance.
