The Robert Brown Memorial Rotunda is popular with brides and grooms
The Albury Botanic Gardens are a lush oasis on the edge of town. Established over 130 years ago and with over 1,000 native and exotic plant species, they are popular with horticulturalists and amateur lovers of natural spaces alike.
Take a wander through the winding paths or sit quietly in the rotunda, one of the seats scattered in the many nooks, or simply spread out on the astonishingly green lawn under the vast shady canopy.
Plenty of places for peaceful reflection
You won't be sure whether you're still on the Murray or have somehow ventured into the tropics with the towering palms rubbing fronds with deciduous English trees, brilliantly coloured in autumn, and native Australian favourites.
Towering palm trees in a tropical paradise
The Albury Botanic Gardens are a popular location for weddings, with the Robert Brown Memorial Rotunda providing a picturesque backdrop for ceremonies.
The Rotunda commemorates the centenary of the death of the founder and first settler of Albury, Robert Brown. It was restored to its original glory in 1979 by the Albury City Council and the Albury and District Historical Society. Climb the steps to enjoy elevated panoramic views of the gardens.
Vast canopies provide shade for the kids
Let their imaginations run wild
Slip into a shady corner of the gardens to discover the Children's Garden. A play space of environmental discovery, the kids will love exploring the trails, cubbies and troll cave. Get their adrenalin running with the life-sized dinosaur, complete with interactive speaking tubes, spark their imagination at the fairy temple and settle their senses on the wetland and creek line.
The Albury Botanic Gardens are fully fenced (handy when you're running around after small children). The main entry is from Wodonga Place, where you will also find the public toilets, including disabled access and baby change facilities.
