School visit

Join us in our living classroom to discover Australia’s rich natural and cultural heritage. Explore the connections between people, plants, and animals through inquiry based exploration and hands-on learning experiences.

Students can engage with one third of Australia’s plants species and a wide range of Australian ecosystems on our 40 hectare site:

  • Investigate the adaptations of Australian rainforest plants as you walk up the east coast from Tasmanian to Queensland in our Rainforest Gully
  • Compare the Red Centre to the alpine region and how they differ to our grasslands
  • Discover how people have used Australian plants and shaped Australian landscapes

Refresh and recharge your students with a range of outdoor, interactive programs or relax on our shady lawns for lunch in the centre of the nation’s capital. Programs are curriculum based and available for pre-school through to tertiary students. We cater for students with special needs or disabilities and the Gardens is wheel-chair accessible.

Teacher professional development programs are available on request. Alternatively schools can run staff professional development days in the Gardens. Free venue hire is offered to schools who schedule a 20 min - 60 min session for teachers exploring the Gardens’ exciting learning opportunities.
