Teacher guided visits
Following the ACT Government’s announcement of the ACT’s COVID-19 Pathway Forward, we’re pleased to advise that the Australian National Botanic Gardens, as an ‘outdoor attraction’, is permitted to re-open to the public on 29 October 2021.
We look forward to welcoming visitors back to the Gardens from 29 October 2021 and thank you for your patience and support. We will provide further information about our re-opening plans and ongoing COVID-Safe operational plans in the coming weeks.
For further information about the ACT’s COVID-19 Pathway Forward and COVID-19 response, please visit https://www.covid19.act.gov.au/
The Gardens are an outdoor classroom for everyone. Schools are welcome to wander and learn at their own pace.
There is no charge for school groups to visit the Gardens and explore. However, bookings are essential for safety reasons.
You can now book online and check availability for programs with Book Canberra Excursions. For urgent enquiries or changes to bookings within the next two weeks please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 02 6250 9408.
We also have a range of resource material that self-guided groups can use to explore the Gardens.
Whether you have a curriculum to follow or just want to enjoy a day in the great outdoors, a teacher-guided visit is the perfect way for your school to explore the Gardens.
