Burrendong Botanic Garden and Arboretum (established 1964) is located on approximately 167 ha adjoining Lake Burrendong, and is one of the largest gardens in the country dedicated solely to the conservation and display of Australia’s unique and incredibly diverse flora

On Sunday 29th May 2016 (between 10am and 3pm) the Friends of Burrendong Arboretum are hosting an open day in conjunction with over 70 other gardens as part of the Botanic Gardens Australia and New Zealand (BGANZ) inaugural open day to celebrate the vital work botanic gardens do for plant conservation

The day will include:

Australian native plant sale, where many interesting species propagated from the huge array on display here will be available. So come out and grab a few plants to spruce up your garden, and see them in their mature form on site;

Free guided tours and information. Take a self-drive tour of the grounds or walk the many beautiful trails (interesting at any time of year);

Display by the Arboretums new artist-in-residence, Mrs Kim Bagot-Hiller, of her fabulous native flower prints;

Various local market stalls including Wellington Arts & Crafts, Landcare (native bee hive making display), WIRES, Wellington Historical Society and more;

Activities for kids throughout the day including a craft table, face painting, mystery walk & treasure hunt;

Sandwiches, morning / afternoon tea (various homemade treats) and soft drinks will be available for purchase, or bring a picnic lunch and enjoy it at one of our picturesque seating areas. Free tea and coffee will be available all day

Come along and bring the whole family for a great day out! Garden entry is free (though donations are always appreciated). All proceeds from the day go to supporting The Arboretum in its important mission to preserve and display Australia’s unique flora
