If you’re unable to come to the Garden, we’ll aim to bring it to you with our ‘Wellness Wanders’.
In this challenging time, we’re more aware than ever of the power and importance of nature – the sights, smells and sounds as the Garden moves through the seasons.
We would like the Botanic Garden to be an uplifting resource for those who cannot get to the Garden, so we’re recording these walkabouts for everyone to enjoy the seasonal colours, sights and sounds.
Below is a short video (around 10 minutes) of our latest wander, as well as a library of previous ones.
We’d love to hear from you, so please do share your thoughts and comments on our social media channels.
We hope you enjoy these short films and that they bring you some uplift and respite, thank you for watching.

We hope you enjoy this week’s Wellness Wander.
