Take a guided tour of the Geelong Botanic Gardens’ 21st Century Garden.

Designed and created in response to prolonged drought, the garden features plants which have adapted to water shortage both in Australia and around the world. The landscape is innovative and initially caused much discussion, both local and international. This unusual garden has much to teach us about adaptation to climate change.

BYO hat, sunscreen and mosquito repellent.

Meet your guide at the main entrance gates, at the corner of Podbury Drive and Eastern Park Circuit.
