Albury Botanic Gardens, NSW

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.

The gardens are extremely popular with horticultural enthusiasts and garden lovers. Many travel from around the country to explore and appreciate over a thousand species of native and exotic flora and fauna co-existing in this beautiful haven.

AlburyCity is progressing with a range of improvements not only to keep people coming, but also to engage whole new audiences. We hope to attract more children and families with our Children’s Garden, but anyone can be a citizen scientist. Our brand new ClimateWatch trail will be launched in 2016, and visitors may record sightings of plant and animal species on the trail, making worthy contributions to long-term monitoring of the ecological effects of climate change.

This trail was developed in partnership with AlburyCity through funding from NSW Government Local Land Services Murray and the Australian Goverment National Landcare Programme.
