Australian National Botanic Gardens

10.00 am – 11.30 am, Thursdays 17, 24 & 31 October & 21 November — Meet at the Visitor Centre

Join a volunteer guide to discover flowering plants along the Bushland Nature Walk and enjoy spectacular views over Lake Burley Griffin.

The walk takes you through open forest and features expansive views to Canberra City and Parliament House. Many of the plants are labelled and you will find interpretive signs about the biodiversity, fire ecology and soil of the area. The walk culminates at a viewing platform offering spectacular views across Lake Burley Griffin. Return is via the same path.

This is an easy to moderate walk on a formed track with some uneven ground, a few steps and some short steep sections. The walk will end at the viewing platform and return along the trail to the Visitor Centre.

The trail is in the Bushland Precinct of the Gardens and is part of the local Black Mountain environment.

  • Bring: Water, snacks and good walking shoes
  • Distance: 3.2 km return from the Visitor Centre
  • Cost: Free (bookings essential)
