Walk around the waterfall and ponds of the Rainforest Gully, where you can see many of the 450 species of palm trees the Gardens contain. Admire coastal plants and a mangrove near the gardens' beach. A shady playground is also available to entertain children. Make sure you put on sunscreen and insect repellent before your visit.

  • Loved this botanical gardens, as you walk through it feels like you are in another world. Great little landmarks along the way and the waterfall in the middle is well worth a visit.
  • It's just awesome how it's been laid out and the massive variety of tropical plants here to see. Unfortunately I don't have any photos to attach at the moment.
  • Darwin was ok. This place was nice enough. Not heaps to do but very visually beautiful.
  • Quiet beautiful place to wander around especially the Africa garden with the cactee and Boab trees is amazing
  • Really peaceful and picturesque haven right in the city. Just across the road from Mindil beach. The gardens are a great place for a family picnic or just a quiet escape from the bustle of everyday life.
