Redlands IndigiScapes Centre - 17 Runnymede Rd Capalaba (Brisbane)
This hidden gem is a native botanic garden with walking trails, a creek, a playground, native animals (not captive), a function centre, demonstration gardens (which, incidentally, have been designed by yours truly), and a cafe. A truly relaxing place to be, the cafe supports local producers, and native plants feature throughout their menu.
Liquid Sanity Cafe - 140 Tingal Rd Wynnum
These guys have already won over the locals in a relatively short space of time. Friendly service, great coffee, and a good selection of healthy bites keep them coming back for more.
