Bookings are now open for Breakfast with the Birds, an outstanding opportunity to observe some of Canberra’s amazing birdlife in the beautiful surrounds of the Australian National Botanic Gardens. In a small group, experience the Gardens early on a spring morning, when the birds are nesting and at their most active, followed by a delicious hot breakfast in Floresco in the Gardens café.
Helping the Gardens Grow
We are a diverse group of people who love and support our beautiful Gardens – the world’s largest collection of Australian native plants. We have an extensive program of talks, visits and social events. There are many opportunities for members and visitors to meet, learn, grow and enjoy the riches of this very special place. This website will help you find events that most interest you.
We were formed in 1990 as a community support group for the Gardens. Since then we have raised and spent around $3/4 million on projects in the Gardens and now have 1700 members. And we support the Gardens in many other ways, such as leading guided walks to show visitors the wonders of the Gardens, and hands on support of research programs.
