Yungaba Gardens, located in the picturesque Kangaroo Point of Queensland, holds a captivating historical significance that adds to its allure. The gardens find their roots in the mid-19th century when Yungaba House was initially established as a residence for Queensland’s Immigration centre.

Serving as an immigration depot during that era, Yungaba House witnessed the arrival of numerous immigrants to Brisbane. Over time, the gardens surrounding the house flourished, becoming renowned for their enchanting beauty along the banks of the Brisbane River.

Yungaba’s rich history was ultimately honoured through an extensive restoration project initiated by the Queensland Government in the 1990s. Today, Yungaba Gardens stands as a testament to its bygone eras, seamlessly blending the past with the present, and offering a serene and captivating green space in the heart of Kangaroo Point.
