It's impossible not to notice the profusion of yellow lining many of Canberra's roads, and popping out of suburban reserves and parkland at the moment. For most of the year, you'd be pressed to spot unassuming Acacia (Wattle) trees and bushes, but when August/September rolls around…WOW!



The Australian National Botanical Gardens are celebrating their collection of Acacia plants (who knew there were so many different types?!) this September with a series of free Wattle Walks held daily at 11am. Visitors will see a vast selection of Australian wattles, whilst learning about the role wattle has played in Australian history and culture. The survival and resilience of wattle in the harsh Australian climate will also be discussed.

The walks will start Thursday 1 September and run until Sunday 11 September.
