Self Guided Walks

Every tree has a story to tell

Along the road between the Orientation Centre (near the Gardens office) and the Wesleyan Church are 19 wooden posts with yellow perspex markers.  To guide you along the way, we have produced a laminated information card which you can borrow from either the Orientation Centre. You can also download the Every tree has a story to tell self guided walk (pdf 348Kb).

Bird Watching

Identification sheets of some birds commonly seen are available on site at the Orientation centre or are also available for download (pdf 979Kb). Unfortunatley the Rufous Owl has not been seen at the Gardens for a couple of years now. But you are sure to see some of the other birds that are listed.

Cycad Walk

A collection of 11 species of Cycad plants are located in the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens. You can find this special Garden at Geranium Street entrance near the carpark.

The brochure for the Cycad walk is located in the Orientation Centre or can be downloaded (pdf 1.4Mb).
