Australian Arid Lands Botanic Gardens
When you're in Port Augusta, call in and visit the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Gardens.
Enjoy a relaxing stroll through a range of natural and themed gardens including our innovative and award-winning AridSmart Display and our nationally significant Eremophila and Rare Plants collections.
Explore the amazing range of plants on one of the Garden's four walking tracks, including an animal discovery walk for children. Home to more than 150 species of arid land native birds the 250 hectare Garden is a bird lover's paradise. Spectacular views of the ancient Flinders Ranges form a backdrop to the garden, and can be enjoyed more fully from the historic Matthew Flinders Red Cliff Lookout.
Enjoy native-food inspired food in the Bluebush Cafe in our award-winning visitor centre. Relax al fresco with a freshly brewed espresso or a glass of wine and with a meal or one of the native tasting plates.
The Gift Shop provides information on the Garden as well as unique, Australian made souvenirs and water-wise AridSmart plants grown on site.
You'll find us on the north side of Port Augusta on the Stuart Highway, the main road to Darwin.
