Australian National Botanic Gardens

Australian National Botanic Gardens extended temporary closure

The Australian National Botanic Gardens will be temporarily closed to visitors until 18 June 2020.

Our Gardens are treasured by locals and visitors alike, and we understand many people would have been looking forward to visiting, however the health and wellbeing of our staff, visitors and local communities is our utmost priority. We all have a role to play in minimising the risk of COVID-19.

Our thoughts are with the community during this difficult time and we encourage social interaction with the Gardens via our website and social media platforms. Please join our online community via Facebook and Instagram as we’ll continue to share stories and provide updates as they come to hand. We also encourage everyone to share stories, special memories and photographs of the Gardens through these platforms.

We will continue to care for our precious living collections and seed collections during the temporary closure.

We look forward to seeing you again in our beautiful Gardens in the future.
