Albury Botanic Gardens

Parks and Gardens

Become lost in the natural beauty of one of Albury’s most treasured icons. Explore the garden’s established trees, meandering pathways and colourful garden beds.

Opened by Mayor William Jones in 1877 with the planting of a single elm tree, the grounds were once fashioned to resemble the Union Jack with straight rows of elms and pines. Quite the landscaping achievement, complemented by heritage buildings like the 1890 band rotunda and the 1909 curator’s residence. History buffs can take a self-guided Heritage Walk around the gardens, discovering 19 sites of such significance.

The Gardens have over 1,000 species, representing some 450 genera and 95 plant families. In particular, the rainforest collection is extensive for a garden in such a southerly latitude.

Kids are well catered for thanks to enchanting children’s gardens, replete with trails that offer fun (yet educational) insights into flora and fauna. Expect a life-sized dinosaur with interactive speaking tubes, a fairy temple, and a troll cave.
