Check the time on the sundial, unwind by the waterfall or laze on the lawn at the Rock Garden.

The much-loved Rock Garden is one of the Australian National Botanic Gardens’ most popular areas.

The garden’s special soils support a wide variety of plants that naturally occur in habitats ranging from alpine areas to deserts.

The Rock Garden is where you’ll find some of our smallest, most intricate plants nestled into carefully prepared garden beds. Brightly coloured flowers and a stunning waterfall add to the beauty of this exceptional area.
