When the Mayor of Albury, Alderman William Jones, opened the City’s Botanic Gardens with the planting of an English Elm tree in 1877, he created an icon which has stood the test of time. For over 130 years, these magnificent gardens have graced the western end of Albury’s Central Business District.
While the trees have matured and the layout has been modernised, the Albury Botanic Gardens has lost none of its beauty and charm - and remains the jewel in the city’s crown to this day. This is a place where people of all ages and backgrounds come for peace, relaxation, education and celebration.
