Australian National Botanic Gardens

Australian National Botanic Gardens extended temporary closure

The Australian National Botanic Gardens will be temporarily closed to visitors until 18 June 2020.

Our Gardens are treasured by locals and visitors alike, and we understand many people would have been looking forward to visiting, however the health and wellbeing of our staff, visitors and local communities is our utmost priority. We all have a role to play in minimising the risk of COVID-19.

Our thoughts are with the community during this difficult time and we encourage social interaction with the Gardens via our website and social media platforms. Please join our online community via Facebook and Instagram as we’ll continue to share stories and provide updates as they come to hand. We also encourage everyone to share stories, special memories and photographs of the Gardens through these platforms.

We will continue to care for our precious living collections and seed collections during the temporary closure.

We look forward to seeing you again in our beautiful Gardens in the future.

Monday 23 March, 9.00 am – 1.00 pm — Crosbie Morrison Building

For National Eucalypt Day 2020 join us for an interactive workshop on exotic pests of eucalypts and plant biosecurity at the Australian National Botanic Gardens. 


Plant biosecurity plays an important role in protecting the health of plants, including eucalypts, in botanic gardens, the natural environment and agricultural settings. By participating in this workshop you can get involved in plant biosecurity and surveillance for plant pests.

The workshop will include several presentations by experts with a focus on exotic pests of eucalypts and biosecurity. Following the presentations we will head out into the Gardens to undertake field surveillance for pests of eucalypts.

This event is being coordinated by the Botanic Gardens Biosecurity Network which was established by Plant Health Australia.
