National Botanical Garden
National Botanical Garden information
Around 9km east of the city centre, these gardens cover 7700 sq m and are planted with indigenous flora from around the country. The 20,000-odd plant species are labelled and grouped according to their region of origin, so a visit is a must for keen botanists. Garden picnic concerts are held from May to September.
By car, head east along Church St (Rte 104) for about 8km, then turn right into Cussonia Rd; the gardens are on the left-hand side.
