Fabulous walk of the gardens
A perfect afternoon having a guided tour of the tropical gardens with inside information and Darwin folklore. Our guides were Rachel and John, both providing excellent commentary on various trees and history of the area. I would highly recommend this tour, even for people who aren’t avid gardeners. Wear comfortable shoes, a hat and take plenty of water.

Thank you for taking a moment to highly recommend our tour in the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens, Howard J, and give prospective guests an insight to your experience. It's the perfect place to spend a leisurely couple of hours, isn't it? And, Wow!, it was Rachel's very first tour with Walk Darwin so we are super pleased to hear she did a great job, thank you.

Great introduction to the seasonal highlights & history of the gardens
Oct 2018 • Solo
This is an excellent, informative and well-researched tour covering the history of the gardens and many of the plants and wildlife living in the gardens.

Yvonne, our guide, could answer all of our questions, and guide us through some stunning seasonal flowerings - of the boab tree, cannonball tree and many varieties of ornamental ginger. She also knew where to find a barking owl (snoozing high up in a tree) and lovely blue-winged kookaburra.

I joined the final free walking tour of the gardens (mid Oct 2018), organised with Walk Darwin by the Darwin City Council. It would definitely be worth paying for this excellent tour.

Free one hour walking tour of George Brown Botanic Gardens
Sep 2018 • Solo
A relaxed opportunity to learn more about the history of the gardens and some key features. It provides a springboard to further explore those areas that you are interested in. The talk was informative and conducted at a good pace. Questions were happily welcomed. A great introduction!

Free walking tour of Darwin Botanic Gardens
Sep 2018 • Couples
Very enjoyable 1 hour free guided tour of the Botanic Gardens by Walk Darwin funded by the government. This is not a serious botanic tour but an easy paced overview with history about the gardens and advice as to other sections that may be of interest to the guest.
Suited us just perfectly.

A great experience. Worth a sixth star.

A one hour walking tour in the heat was not something that I had planned but very pleased that we took the tour. The guide was knowledgeable and interesting and we walked at a pace that was easy to keep up with.
Most enjoyable, as was the cold drink in the cafe afterwards.
