Burnley Gardens


Burnley Gardens

The Burnley Gardens in Richmond date back to 1861 when the Horticulture Society of Victoria established experimental gardens. The aim was to introduce new plants to the colonies, and to promote botanical and horticultural science.

The land was granted to the Society on the basis that a portion of the gardens remain open to the public and this has continued to the present day.

Friends of Burnley Gardens


The Friends of Burnley Gardens was formed in 1998. We are a non-profit, incorporated community organisation. Membership is open to anyone who is interested in supporting the Gardens, enjoying the company of like-minded people, and attending the variety of enjoyable, stimulating events held throughout each year.
We aim to

provide support for and foster public awareness of the historic Burnley Gardens
assist with special projects selected by the Friends in consultation with Burnley Campus staff
bring together people with a common interest in the Burnley Gardens.


Tours


The Friendly Guides are available to conduct tours of the historic Burnley Gardens. The Guides are well-versed in the history of the Gardens and the plants they contain, some of which are as old as the Gardens themselves. Four of our trees are on the National Tree Register as Significant Trees.

Experience the Shady Walk, stroll past the Luffman Ponds, listen to the birds in the Native Garden, wonder at the beauty of the Heritage listed trees, and find plants from many different areas of the world.

Tours can be arranged to suit your groupís different interests and mobility. The small fee and any donations go towards different projects in the gardens.

Arrange for your group to tour the Gardens (with optional light meal or refreshments) by emailing burnleyarchives@gmail.com, or phone Burnley Reception on 9035 6800.
