Teacher guided visits
The Australian National Botanic Gardens is open and welcomes visitors from 8.30 am to 5 pm every day of the year (except 25 December).
Visitors will need to comply with the COVID-19 safety measures that remain in place across the ACT. Read more.
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.
