Visit the Gardens
The Australian National Botanic Gardens has re-opened to visitors from 29 October 2021.
We are pleased to welcome visitors back to the Gardens from 8.30 am to 5 pm.
We will continue to follow guidelines set by the ACT’s COVID-19 Pathway Forward and COVID-19 response.
Only minutes from the centre of Canberra is the world’s most diverse collection of Australian plants – more than 4300 different species growing in a stunning bushland setting.
It’s a place where locals and visitors to our nation’s capital come to explore, learn, relax and enjoy time with friends or family in a tranquil natural environment.
Visit the Gardens to:
- Take a botanical journey across Australia from the coastal rainforests to the red centre.
- Have a picnic under the eucalypts or enjoy lunch with a view at the award-winning Pollen cafe.
- Wander the boardwalks and the many bush tracks, or join a guided tour to learn more about the Australian environment.
- Get a rosellas-eye view from the Paperbark Treehouse and discover the importance of biodiversity on the ‘Who Did That?’ children’s trail.
- Take in an exhibition at the gallery or attend one of our regular workshops and events.
The Gardens offer a great day out for families, couples and groups of all ages and abilities.
