George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens
Walks in the gardens
You can follow a trail in the gardens to see many different kinds of trees.
The trail has posts with yellow markers along the road between the orientation centre near the gardens office and Eva's Cafe, also known as the Wesleyan Church. See a map.
There are 11 species of NT cycad plants in the gardens at the Geranium Street entrance near the car park.
The cycad area displays exotic, Australian and Northern Territory cycads.
Larrakia coastal walk
This walk takes you from Mindil Beach onto a boardwalk, through natural mangrove forest and up to Bullocky Point.
From there, you can walk to the museum and art gallery.
En route are painted poles indicating various Larrakia coastal plant uses.
Aboriginal plant walk
There are Aboriginal plants and Top End native plants at various points around the gardens.
See numbers one and two on the map for areas around the Tiwi wet forest and woodland areas.
Many of these can be used as bush tucker and for medicinal purposes.
