George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens

Parks and Gardens

Take a walk through the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens to see a magnificent display of plants from northern Australia and tropical areas around the world.

There are extensive plantings of colourful heliconias, gingers, tropical orchids, bromeliads and other exotic plants.

Our African-Madagascan garden has a unique collection showcasing the world’s baobab and boab trees.

The playground and tree house offers a refreshing, safe and shady retreat for children and parents.

Experience the waterfall deep in the rainforest or be captivated by the primitive plants “the dinosaurs ate” in the cycad garden.

Relax on expansive shady lawns and view Darwin’s largest ornamental fountain.

Treat yourself to a self-guided multi-media tree walk.

Be challenged by taking the orienteering course.

See the gardens differently on a guided walking or Segway tour.

Join the twitchers and search for the Rufous owls.

Or put your feet up and enjoy coffee and cake at Eva’s Café.

The Darwin Botanic Gardens are located 2km from the centre of Darwin City. They are part of a cultural precinct that includes the Museum and Art Gallery and Mindil Beach with its Sunset Markets.
