Experience one of the Australia's most interesting planting areas at Darwin Botanic Gardens. On over 42 hectares (103 acres) from the sea to an inland plateau, you'll find natural marine and estuary plants, a rarity in botanic gardens. Take a self-guided tour to watch marine birds and view 11 species of cycad plants. 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.

  • 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.
  • A beautiful place for walks, quiet times and relaxation or have a beverage at Eva's. I wove coconut palm lead thatch for a gazebo at the Geranium Street entrance.
  • Free, excellent knowledgeable staff. A good variety of trees. Everything different kinds of Baobab's in the world in one place.
  • A nice shady spot for a rest from the hot Darwin sun. There is a large variety of plants which do well to survive in this harsh environment.
  • Darwin's gardens expose a great selection of local tropical flora.
