The Australian National Botanic Gardens are my favourite Canberra attraction, along with The National Art Gallery.
A visit to the Botanic Gardens will not disappoint, from the wonderful rainforest gully, to its extensive collection of eucalypts, or plants from various geoghraphical regions of Australia.
The gardens also house an exceptional botanic bookshop and quality souvenirs and serve a good selection of food at the cafeteria.
Another significant feature are the many indigenous birds and insects that make the gardens home and add to the overall experience.
Accessing the Gardens, situated at Black Mountain, is easiest via rental car as public transport is pretty sparse, but worth the effort of getting there.
The staff are fabulous and will answer any queries you have on Australian indigenous plants.
In the past I have done tours by the voluntary guides, which were highly informative and quite personal.
You will not regret the effort to get there!
