Guided walks

Take a free volunteer guided walk to learn about the plants and features of the City Botanic Gardens. Walks are taken at a gentle pace for about one hour.

Walk information and bookings

Guided walks will not be available from Sunday 8 December 2019 to Monday 27 January 2020. The guided walks will recommence on Tuesday 28 January 2020.

Walks leave Monday-Saturday from the Information Kiosk (Rotunda) at 11am and 1pm. Walks are not available on public holidays or Sundays.

It is not necessary for individuals or small groups to book these walks. Large groups (10 or more people) or groups with a special interest can make a booking for a customised tour by phoning 07 3403 2535. Four weeks notice is required to arrange a booked walk.

For walks for school groups, refer to our Education at the gardens page.
