Explore magical enclosed gardens that tell the intriguing story of how gardens from around the globe reflect different civilisations. 

From our humble beginnings as a city rubbish dump, the Gardens 54 hectares now includes 21 themed gardens that have an internationally unique concept.
A tour with one of our experienced volunteer guides will share the secrets on how a community has created such a special attraction in the heart of a city. 

This all-season tour takes 75 minutes and includes our most popular enclosed gardens. Marvel at the mono-chromatic Japanese Garden of Contemplation, or the symmetry of the Italian Renaissance Garden. Discover the subtleties of each garden’s design that have been created by Gardens’ Director Dr Peter Sergel over 30 years.
