George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens


The George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens are two kilometres north of Darwin city.

The gardens cover 42 hectares and are noted for their collections of north Australian and other tropical species.

The gardens are a cool place where you can relax under a canopy of rain trees and tall palms in the heart of Darwin.

The gardens are popular for exercise and can easily be combined with a visit to the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets during the dry season.

The gardens have been in Darwin for over 130 years and have survived World War II and Cyclone Tracy.

This is one of the few botanic gardens in the world with marine and estuarine plants growing naturally.

The plant display house has tropical orchids, bromeliads and other exotic flora.
