George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens Information

Take a walk through the historic George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens to see a wide range of environments and flora of northern Australia, including 450 species of palms and plantings from Tiwi Island and Arnhem Land.

Wander through monsoon forests, coastal dunes, mangroves and open woodlands. You're sure to find something interesting in one of the few botanic gardens in the world that also has marine and estuarine plants occurring naturally in its grounds. See orchids, aroids, bromeliads and other striking foliage plants up close. There's a collection of about 400 species of palms and cycads, mostly in the rainforest gully that houses a waterfall and ponds. Discover the traditional indigenous uses of local plants when you take a self-guided walk devoted to Aboriginal plant use.

The Gardens were established in 1886 to introduce and evaluate plants for the new city, and have since become important in the recreational and scientific life of Darwin. They have survived severe cyclones, major wildfires and World War II. The Wesleyan Church, formerly located on the corner of Mitchell and Knuckey Streets in the city, has been restored and relocated to the gardens.
