Australian National Botanic Gardens

Please read our FAQ regarding the current COVID-19 restrictions in place at the Gardens.

Engaging, interactive and hands-on, our ranger guided programs take students on a journey of enquiry-based learning.

These facilitated programs have been designed to meet Australian Curriculum targets in science, geography, sustainability, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures.

Our experienced educators specialise in bringing the stories of the Gardens to life. Students will explore the connections between people, plants and animals in the living classroom that is the Australian National Botanic Gardens.
