There’s an experience for everyone - smell and touch plants and flowers at the Sensory Garden, explore our local plants in the Mangroves to Mountains walk, visit the native Butterfly Garden or smell the roses in the Rose Garden.
Latest news - a DiG day out!
Thanks so much to all of you who supported our first Discovery in the Gardens (DiG) event. It was a fantastic day, with lots of exciting activities for young and old to learn about science and nature - from a live bushfire simulation and ABC radio broadcast, to amazing wildlife displays, nature walks and a chance to create your own water filter, herbarium specimen or cyanotype.
It was such a success that we'll definitely be putting it on again next year, so keep your eye on this page for more information.
Check what's on at the gardens for more information.
Fun for the whole family includes a stroll on the boardwalks around the lake, a children's playground or a picnic in one of the many picnic areas.
Freshly ground organic coffee, loose leaf teas and gluten-free treats are also now available every day from the Friends Centre.
