The National Arboretum is a nature-lovers paradise, located just 10 minutes from Canberra's city centre. The 250 hectare property has 94 individual forests made up of some of the world's most endangered and threatened tree species. Visitors are able to take guided walks through the forests to learn more about the conservation of these plantations, or follow the many marked trails and explore the forests themselves. There is also a Visitor Centre with a gift shop, café, views over Canberra, gardens and the National Bonsai and Penjing Collection.
During Floriade, they will be hosting free walks around the property. Bookings are essential online as there are limited places available.
