Beautiful gardens to walk around, lots of different plants from many parts of the world. Paths very easy to walk on. Quiet and peaceful place to visit.

Glad you enjoyed your visit to the George Brown Darwin Gardens.

The Gardens are simply delightful. Peaceful surrounds and meandering pathways makes for a perfect 'wind-down' location. Easy to access and 'Eva's Cafe' at the end of your walk is perfect for some sort of re-fuel. One of my favorite places in Darwin.

Darwin Botanic Gardens are an oasis in the city. Set between two main arterial roads, you could be miles away. It has some lovely walks, lots of well established plants and a cafe. Well worth a visit.

We saw a lot of different bird species and the different gardens were beautiful. An easy walk from our hotel which was just outside the CBD.

We do indeed have a variety of birds here at the Gardens. :) You can pick up our little bird guide at the information centre and if you are lucky you'll even get to see our Rufous Owls in the rainforest area!!

These gardens aren't huge but I enjoyed the hit of tropical plants plus the surprise hit of desert plants in a rock scape. If I lived in Darwin I'd be picnicking here in the greenery all the time.

This is the place if you want a quiet time. Sit on the lawns or under one of the great trees. We were there on a Monday morning to fill in before our afternoon flight and unfortunately the café was closed

The waterfall feature was closed and it was pretty dry and dusty. The boab was interesting but in the dry season that was pretty much it.More

I went there in afternoon while it was scorching hot. One of the biggest Botanical Gardens, so close to the city center. There is a rainforest in there, a small waterfall and huge gardens. if you like to have a stroll around, go there!

You took the words right out of our mouth! If you are in Darwin, don't miss out on our beautiful Gardens a short walk away from the city!!

I can see how these gardens would be great when in flower but we visited in August and not much to see .More

Than you for taking the time to write a review! Even during the dry, our waterfall and rainforest is always worth a visit and we are quite proud of our DIY multimedia Tree Walk that showcases 18 of our most interesting trees in the Gardens...More
