His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd)
Governor-General of the Commonwealth Of Australia

 

BGANZ is are delighted to announce that the Governor-General of Australia, Sir Peter Cosgrove, will be launching the 2017 BGANZ Open Day in Australia. His Excellency will launch the event at 10am on Thursday, 11 May at the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra.

 

This year over 70 gardens have signed up for the Open Day, which will be held on Sunday, 28 May (the last Sunday in May). Every state and territory in Australia will be represented, and gardens on both North and South Island in New Zealand will be taking part. 

 

The theme for this year is "Botanic Gardens Conserving Plants - Our Lives Depend On It." The Open Day will help raise awareness of the conservation efforts of gardens across Australia and New Zealand, as well as encourage people to visit their local botanic gardens.

 

Of course, the Open Day will also be lots of fun! Already, we have gardens planning guided tours, children's activities, live music, plant sales, exhibitions, potting demonstrations, Q&A sessions, special behind-the-scenes nursery displays, theatre performances, orienteering courses and community afternoon tea picnics, plus many more exciting activities!

 

Check out our events page to find out what will be happening at your local gardens.

If you are associated with a garden or arboretum, feel free to use any of our online resources, available here.
