Come and experience the wide, open spaces of the Australian Botanic Garden at Mount Annan. It spreads across 416 hectares in southwest Sydney and opened in 1988, it features stunning gardens, natural woodlands and more than 4,000 Australian native plant species.
This is a place that is a lot more than just plants; you’ll find yourself exploring novel places such as lovely artworks and fascinating architecture. You might meet wildlife, enjoy a picnic or play in the children’s playground.
If you’re up for an adventure, hop on your bike and test your endurance on the challenging mountain bike trail.
A 4 kilometre Woodland Walk from the Visitor Centre takes you through critically endangered remnant Cumberland Plain Woodland, a vital habitat that’s unique to Western Sydney and home to native birds and wildlife.
You might want to try the 2.7 kilometre Central Valley Walk, which climbs various peaks throughout the garden. From the top of Sundial Hill, you can enjoy views of the entire Sydney Basin and the city skyline.
The Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan is a place to connect with nature, relax and help reduce stress.
There are many ways to connect with others through the Garden’s What's On’ calendar for festivals, talks and workshops, markets, tours and self-guided walks.
The garden is also home to the Australian Institute of Botanical Science. It holds physical and virtual botanic scientific collections, making it one of the nation’s premier botanical research organisations.
The Institute aims to conserve and protect plants now and for future generations.
