Stroll on the grass, hug a mighty tree and listen to a chorus of beautiful birdsong.

The Eucalypt Lawn offers plenty of spots to relax in the shade of more than 70 different types of eucalypts. Around one-fifth of Australia’s iconic eucalypt species are represented here, scattered around a soft green lawn.

This is a great place to enjoy a picnic or our summertime concerts and outdoor cinema.

The Burbidge Amphitheatre is situated in the upper part of the Eucalypt Lawn. The Ducrou Pavilion is also on the lawn and is a popular picnic spot for groups.
