Australian National Botanic Gardens

Following the ACT Government’s announcement of the ACT’s COVID-19 Pathway Forward, we’re pleased to advise that the Australian National Botanic Gardens, as an ‘outdoor attraction’, is permitted to re-open to the public on 29 October 2021.

We look forward to welcoming visitors back to the Gardens from 29 October 2021 and thank you for your patience and support. We will provide further information about our re-opening plans and ongoing COVID-Safe operational plans in the coming weeks.

The Friends of the Australian Botanic Gardens are a diverse group of people who love and support our beautiful gardens – the world’s largest collection of Australian native plants.

The group has an extensive program of talks, visits and social events, and there are many opportunities for members and visitors to meet, learn, grow and enjoy the riches of this very special place.

Visit the Friends of the ANBG website to help find events you may be interested in.
