Australian National Botanic Gardens

There’s plenty for everyone to do at the gardens.

Take a stroll through our 80,000-odd native plants to spot birds and animals, explore Aboriginal plant use or enjoy stunning views of the nation’s capital. Kids will love our activity-based Children’s Trail and the path through the shady Rainforest Gully.

We host diverse events including art exhibitions, workshops, bonsai shows and plant sales. Regular talks offer an insight into Australian plants and environmental issues, and in summer our lawns come alive with concerts and the very popular Sunset Cinema. 

Need a break? Browse the huge range of books and gifts at the Botanical Bookshop, enjoy lunch at Pollen or spoil yourself with a native botanical treatment at the Jindii EcoSpa.
