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.
