Cairns Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre

Cairns Queensland

From the sight of an endangered orchid, to the smell of frangipani, to the flutter of the Cairns Blue-wing butterfly, a walk through the Cairns Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre is simply an unforgettable experience. The new Cairns Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre aimed to inspire visitors to go out and experience these pleasures, but wanted this inspiration to grow from within the non-organic environment of the building.

Arterial’s response was to use highly lush visual graphics, and design hanging banners, interactive media wall of mesmerising moving images, entertaining insights into the world of plants, stylish cabinetry including an attractive touchscreen kiosk, and a terrarium. A visit to the Gardens now begins at this award nominated, ‘reflective’ space in which inspiring curiosity in our natural world is brought to a highly ‘polished’ and artistic level.
