A prime example of what community spirit can achieve is on display at the Australian Inland Botanic Gardens. As the first semi-arid botanical gardens in the southern hemisphere, this is where the desert really comes into bloom. The plantings showcase a wide variety of Australian and exotic species, the centrepiece of which may be the rose garden featuring over 1600 colour co-ordinated bushes.
Every Saturday at 11am visitors can enjoy a tractor/train tour through the gardens. Garnpang Homestead is our coffee shop. It is open daily and visitors can relax over morning or afternoon tea, or a light lunch. Browse through a selection of handcrafted gifts and cards.
Every fourth Saturday we have a sumptuous breakfast made by our talented volunteers. 8:30- 11am.
Entry to the gardens is free, donation appreciated.
The AIBG has recently opened a Children’s Garden. It comprises a range of play equipment which has been made by volunteers from recycled materials. This is a place to play in a natural environment. There is a cubby house, sand pit and musical instruments to play with. A lot of the play equipment has been made by school children. For a list of activities during School Holiday Activities click on school holidays activities.
There is no entrance fee, but a donation for the garden’s maintenance is welcome.
The Gardens are open to the public everyday from 10.00am – 4.30pm.
