Australian National Botanic Gardens

Half Day or Less

Visiting the Australian National Botanic Gardens gives you the chance to explore around one fifth of Australia’s diverse and spectacular flora in Canberra’s bushland setting.

With over 6,000 plant species set on 35 hectares, the Australian National Botanic Gardens is the only place in the world you will see this diversity of Australian native plants in one location.

Enjoy a free guided walk, a ride on the Flora Explorer (weekends and public holidays) or treat yourself at the cafe, bookshop or day spa.
