The Bible Garden

Parks and Gardens

The Bible Garden is a sacred place – for solitude, personal reflection and learning.

It is located within the precincts of the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra, Australia’s national capital. Visitor parking is available onsite.

The Garden was established with a benevolent grant from The Bible Garden Trust, a perpetual trust established by the late Mr Gerald Hercules Robinson. The purpose of the trust was to create and maintain gardens that feature the botany that is described in the Bible, and through this activity to educate people, particularly young people, in the scriptures.

The shape of the garden resembles the menorah, which is said to represent the burning bush where Moses saw the angel who told him to lead the Israelites to the land of milk and honey.

Construction of the Bible Garden commenced in 2007 and it was officially opened at a ceremony on Sunday 3 August 2008. Speakers included former Governor-General, Sir William Deane AC KBE QC, Reverend Professor James Haire and members of the Robinson family.
