Australian National Botanic Gardens
Visit the Australian National Botanic Gardens and discover the rich stories of Australia’s unique plants in a vibrant outdoor classroom.
The Gardens grow the largest collection of Australian native plants in the world. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of Australia as you explore a diversity of ecosystems, from sub-tropical rainforests to the red centre and investigate how Australia’s plants have adapted to different environmental pressures.
Discover some of Australia’s most threatened plant species and the work that botanic gardens are doing to secure the future of these plants.
Stretch your legs on our scenic walking tracks then enjoy lunch on our lawns with undercover areas.
Choose from a variety of interactive Australian Curriculum linked programs delivered by Education Rangers, exploring pollination, habitats, adaptation, biomes and First Nations’ knowledge about plants and ecosystems.
Alive with learning and just minutes from the city centre, the Gardens is the perfect place for students to engage their senses, refresh and recharge.
