Australian National Botanic 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.

Retreat into the cool, shady Rainforest Gully, one of the Gardens’ most popular attractions.

Wandering the upper and lower boardwalks, you’ll admire lush plants from the diverse rainforests of Australia’s east coast all the way from Tasmania to Queensland.

Interpretive signs give more details about our remarkable rainforests, and daily mistings enhance the ambience and refreshing temperatures.

The Rainforest Gully is Canberra’s coolest place to relax and escape the heat in summer.
