The Gardens offer themed walks and tours for visitors to marvel at the diversity of Australian plants, get moving or simply enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

With the world’s most diverse collection of Australian native plants set within 35 hectares, choose to ramble through the Paperbark, Red Centre or Rock Gardens, wander through the cool Rainforest Gully or picnic on the Eucalypt Lawn. 
Join a free guided walk or climb to the top of Black Mountain to take in the superb views across the city – there are many ways to take in all the Gardens has to offer.
