Friends of Geelong Botanic Gardens
Geelong Botanic Gardens, Garden St, East Geelong
  • Wed 25 March, 11am - 12pm
  • Sun 29 March, 2pm - 3pm

Tour a garden that’s been created during prolonged drought and designed to adapt to the challenges of global warming and climate change.

Challenging what a Botanic Garden should look like with design.

The 21st Century garden’s design, materials and plant selection challenge the traditional notion of what a Botanic Garden looks like. Designed and created in a period of prolonged drought and therefore is well suited to the challenges that face us in the future of global warming and climate change.

The 21st Century garden honours Geelong’s history and heritage. Its design celebrates our indigenous heritage, our seafaring links with its ships and masts and connects the gardens to the Geelong Waterfront and Corio Bay. The design aims to bring the gardens history and future together to create a refreshing and stimulating visitor experience.

The meeting point is at the main entrance gates where the steps are, at the corner of Podbury Drive and Eastern Park Circuit.
