Monday 2 - Sunday 8 May
Canberra Tree Week is a chance to appreciate and celebrate the beautiful and exceptional trees and forests we have in Canberra. The 2016 event will be held from Monday 2 to Sunday 8 May to showcase the beautiful autumn colour of Canberra's trees. Discover the many benefits trees give to our community, local wildlife and the Canberra environment at one of the many activities happening around town.
Take the opportunity to become more intimate with Australian native trees and their notable features. Who's hairy and why? Who's the 'weeping mini'? And in which tree will you find nature's most prolific graffiti artist? Drop into the Visitor Centre and collect a self guided map booklet and head out on a fascinating tour of the Garden's trees. Booklets available from 1 May.
