Not in My Backyard: 2016 International Festival of Landscape Architecture

Nestled on the foot of Black Mountain lies the Australian National Botanic Gardens

Home of the world’s most comprehensive collection of Australian native plants. With over 6,300 species set within 35 hectares of natural bush and landscaped gardens, the Gardens is the only place in the world where you’ll will see this diversity of Australian native plants in one location. In a one-hour specially tailored tour, you will be guided through the diverse landscapes of the Gardens – from the Eastern Rainforests of Australia to the Arid Red Centre – and be given an insight into how landscape design and use of materials and infrastructure have been used to reflect the diversity and unity within Australian landscapes and Australian vegetation.

The ANBG cafe, Floresco in the Gardens, offers a beautiful dining experience featuring fresh produce and Australian bush foods. After the tour enjoy afternoon tea in the gardens.
