    Just wondering if there is a temporary gift shop set up somewhere while the refurbishment is happening? I need to purchase some Redlands gifts urgently to send overseas. Thanks

    Maree L asked 12 months ago

    Hi Maree, unfortunately IndigiScapes Centre, including the gift shop, is still under construction. Keep an eye on our webpage for reopening dates towards the end of 2019.

    Hello, Thank you for your response to my previous question regarding water education. Can you please clarify, does your planned waterways education include drinking water supply and conservation? Is there anyone I can talk to regarding this? Thank you, Linda

    Water education, highlighting water supply and water conservation, will not be within the educational scope of the IndigiScapes Centre building. Please contact Redland Water on 07 3829 8999 about their water supply and water conservation initiatives.

    After a visit today to Indigiscapes,I was shocked to see that nothing is happening there. The building is almost derelict. It is April. When are things going to start happening? I am very disappointed.

    alisonjeanwoodley asked about 1 year ago

    Thank your for your enquiry. It is anticipated that the IndigiScapes refurbishment works will commence in May. Please be assured that in the interim the Centre, including the gardens are monitored and maintained daily and our regular programs being currently run from Capalaba Place, (Capalaba Library building).

    With regards to the expansion of the IndigiScapes Centre, has there been any thoughts or provisions for extra parking within the grounds? Parking along Runnymede Road is not a solution. It makes it very difficult and dangerous for residents to enter and exit their properties.

    RK asked over 1 year ago

    Hi RK

    Thanks for your enquiry. Additional parking for events will be available on the nursery site next door.

    Cheers,

    Emma

    Will I be able to access the indigiscape from Korawal street and walk ove creek to the display gardens, this is my regular walking track. Have to say Im not much interested in the expansion of buildings on the site and the tree top walk is not needed.

    Robin asked over 1 year ago

    Access from Korawal Street, beyond the bridge will not be possible during the closure. An alternate access would be from the Lyndon Road trail that comes out at the end of the gardens and will remain open.
