Australian National Botanic Gardens

The Australian National Botanic Gardens has re-opened to visitors from 29 October 2021.

We are pleased to welcome visitors back to the Gardens from 8.30 am to 5 pm.

We will continue to follow guidelines set by the ACT’s COVID-19 Pathway Forward and COVID-19 response.

Foster your child’s imagination and love of learning by interacting with nature.

The Who Did That? Children’s Trail uses activity stations to introduce children to the concept that plants are important for animal biodiversity.

An accompanying activity booklet provides parents and carers with interesting information and ideas for questions to ask their budding scientists.

Download an activity booklet or pick one up from the Visitor Centre to get started.
