Australian National Botanic Gardens

Discover the stunning diversity of native Australian plants, right here in Canberra

Nestled in the foothills of Black Mountain, the Australian National Botanic Gardens is the perfect retreat from the rush of city life.

Come to the Gardens, breathe in the fresh air, listen to the birds and watch the trees sway with the breeze. Take a stroll beneath the canopy of the Rainforest Gully, enjoy a coffee or a massage, and leave feeling rejuvenated.

With over 4,500 species on display, the Gardens is the only place where you can see the true variety of native Australian plants in one location
