Gardens’ new afterDARK tour is so tempting

Enjoy the setting of the rainforest afterDARK this summer

This summer you’ll be delighted by Delicious! afterDARK at the Australian National Botanic Gardens which adds gourmet food and wines to a tour through our rainforest gully and stunning displays of native plants.

The afterDARK tours have been a huge hit – the winter tours offered families all the fun of a night-time adventure spotlighting possums, bats, birds and kangaroos, and the more recent afterDARK dreamtime interwove a tour of the gardens with stories of Aboriginal people’s religion, spirituality and survival.

This season treat yourself to live string music as you sample a selection of locally produced gourmet food and Canberra region wines. Then relax in our marquee on the Brittle Gum Lawn as you join Greg Gallagher from Gallagher Wines who’ll share some trade secrets of his thirty years in premium wine production in Australia and overseas. Sounds amazing? Mmm, we think so too! What a wonderful way to spend a summer evening - or to solve those Christmas gift dilemmas.

For dates and details go to the gardens’ website.
