Auburn Botanic Garden features 24 acres of dazzling gardens divided into several different themes. Having an abundance of plants and animals, the Garden is sure to please the nature lover in you.

You and your camera will be happy as you explore the various gardens that make up the Auburn Botanic Garden. Visitors will be delighted by the Japanese Garden, the Scented Garden and the Sunken Rose Garden. There is also the Native and Rainforest Garden, the Fauna Reserve populated with indigenous plants and animals, and an Aviary populated with birds, both native and from Asia.

In addition to these beautiful gardens, you can enjoy the current exhibition at the Peacock Gallery and Arts Studio also located at the Garden. There is no additional charge for this.

The Garden draws pretty big crowds on the weekends, so, if you can manage to visit on a weekday, it may be more pleasant.

Nearby attractions include Sydney Olympic Park and Parramatta Park / Old Government House.

Auburn Botanic Gardens Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating Peaceful park with a nice path that winds around beautiful greenery and ponds. There is a play park for the kids and a selection of wildlife. It is not overwhelming and makes for a nice day out in nature. We spotted people enjoying picnics. There are restrooms there as well. We didn't have a hard time finding parking. Plenty of shade on a sunny day.

5 Star Rating Have visited this gorgeous garden several times. Recently came here on a weekday in Autumn and it was really peaceful! The peacocks, geeses and other birds roaming around are adorable and look so free. These birds as well as the animals in the Fauna Reserve look very well taken care of. The garden was beautiful in many aspects and there was plenty of parking on a weekday

5 Star Rating Very nice area to look at and have a walk through. The Japanese garden area is very nice, though I can't wait to see it while the trees are in bloom. The pond areas are quite relaxing and serene . There are tons of coi in the water and wandering peacocks, geese, and water dragons around which the kids enjoyed watching.

How to get to Auburn Botanic Gardens by Train

By Train and Bus: Take a T2 Inner West and South Line from Circular Quay, Wynyard, Town Hall or Central Station or the T1 Western Line from Central Station. Make sure you board a train that is goes to Auburn Station without transfering, as that will give you the shortest overall travel time. Exit to the west side of Auburn Station; and walk south on South Parkade continuing on Auburn Road then left (west) on Chiswick Place (30 minutes). This is a relatively long walk so you may want to catch the 909 Bankstown Bus to Cumberland Road near Chiswick Road and walk west four blocks to the Gardens, however keep in mind the buses only run every 30 minutes (60 minutes on Sundays).
