The Australian National Botanic Gardens, on the lower slopes of Black Mountain in Canberra, has the world’s most comprehensive display of living Australian native plants. A place for recreation, inspiration, science and learning.

The Centre for Australian National Biodiversity Research (CANBR) includes the Australian National Herbarium. These are jointly managed by CSIRO and the Director of National Parks with strong links to the Australian National Botanic Gardens. The Herbarium, with over 1.2 million specimens, is responsible for the scientific integrity of the Gardens' plant labeling and manages the national plant name lists for Australia's botanical community.

One single database, the Integrated Botanical Information System (IBIS), is used for all these activities. This allows linking of names, photographs, herbarium specimens and living plants.

The Australian National Botanic Gardens offers a picturesque alternative for your next event. Whether you are looking at hosting a small intimate meeting, large workshop, lecture or planning day, the Gardens has the venue to suit your needs.

Our indoor venues offer free WiFi, audiovisual equipment and electronic whiteboards with additional equipment available upon request.

From a platform overlooking the rainforest to a lawn amongst the gum trees, the Gardens offer a range of unique outdoor wedding ceremony sites. Complement your wedding ceremony with a reception in the Gardens. Whether you are after a relaxed cocktail reception or a formal dining affair, Hellenic Premium Catering is on hand to help create your wedding that leaves a lasting impression.
