I was surprised that there were such beautiful tropical gardens right on the city's edge. The old oil storage tanks in the middle are a fascinating bonus.

Being a very hot/humid climate with lots of rainfall Darwin is blessed when it comes to the chance to create a lovely botanical garden. There are a range of experiences here, you can stay on the flatter greener area near some water bodies, you can wander up the hills for some elevated views and the gardens are laid out in themed areas. Quite relaxing to wander around and often used by wedding parties and the like due to the lush green nature of the flat areas. A couple of historic buildings round out the experience.

This Botanic garden is well sign posted but lacked plant colour- and we were there in the dry season so expected to see some beautiful colour or cyclads but the walk through the rain forest area was lovely,

We visited while the festival was on, so was extra special. Easy to find and a wonderful place to visit at the Top End

Very pretty place. Well run and good signage. Nice little visitors centre. Lovely kids area. - Plenty to keep them busy. Very dry when we visited so some areas parched.the old church building pretty but would make a lovely coffee shop? Free!
