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 home to more than just plants.

Our diverse natural habitats attract a wide range of birds, mammals, insects and reptiles. In turn, these animals help keep the Gardens’ ecosystems healthy.
