The Australian National Botanic Garden is located in the capital city of Australia, Canberra and is administered and looked after by the Department of Environment and Heritage. If you ever feel like escaping from the city while still being in the city, this is the place to be. The Australian National Botanic Garden has a beautiful collection of Australian plants. It offers a wide and breathtaking variety of Australian native plants and is set in a bushland setting. This museum is the only place in the world that brings to you the diversity of Australian flora all in one location located only a few minutes away from Canberra’s city centre.
The Australian Botanic Garden maintains a scientific collection of Australia’s native vegetation from each and every part of the country. This garden also cultivates endangered plant species in order to save them from extinction and provides visitors with useful information that go a long way to help the reintroduction of these plants back to their natural habitats. Apart from that, a lot of research activity on plants is also carried out in the Australian National Botanic Garden. The gardens are open to the public daily from 8:30 am to 5 pm.
