Spectacular Centenary summer at the Gardens

Enjoy a summer evening on the Eucalypt Lawn

The Gardens’ summer program of events is our best ever, with music, sunset movies and picnics to look forward to!

We’re kicking the Canberra centenary off on Saturday 5 January 2013 with our signature Summer Sounds concert series - a month-long season of live music featuring some of the best band and dance talent in the capital.

Pack your own picnic or pre-order your delicious 666 ABC Canberra and Floresco in the Gardens’ concert picnic hamper. The first 25 orders each weekend will receive a special food and wine hamper, plus 666 ABC Canberra merchandise including an ABC Organic Gardener magazine – so get in quick!

In February we’ll extend the activities with a six-week program of outdoor movies. Take your pick from new releases like Skyfall, Les Miserables and The Life of Pi, children’s favourites Wreck-it Ralph and Rise of the Guardians or classic titles like Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Relax with beer, wine, soft drinks, hot buttery popcorn or coffee - all of which will be available on-site.

We’ll also continue to bring the Rainforest Gully to life at night with our popular afterDARK series. On Friday 4 January and Friday 1 February, our special adults only summer theme is Delicious! afterDARK – a sensual feast of summer night Gardens tours, live string music and gourmet tasting of local food and wine.
