Passed the gardens several times during our stay in Darwin, and thought we should make time to see more of what looked so good from the outside. Leisurely stroll over the little bridge admiring the huge tree nearby, some of the local indigenous people drew...More

In every town in Australia, you'll find a botanical garden. Some poor, but not this one. Set on a hillside with a wide variety of different areas, lots of imaginative planting and use of space. The grass really is greener here.

I had an hour at the botanical garden and thought it was enough. But if you love plants and like to explore, you can spend several hours here. There are nice restrooms. Unfortunately there is no gift shop, but there is a nice cafe.

I enjoyed a visit here and strolled around most of the paths through the various ecological zones. Generally it was interesting but just lacked a bit of information, especially as to which areas were being replanted. Several times we came across areas of devastation which...More
