Hug a tree…and 99 more things to do

“CITYNEWS” has noticed how accustomed Canberrans have become in the past year to counting things in the hundreds – could it be something to do with the Centenary?

botanicNow the Australian National Botanic Gardens is doing it too, compiling a list of “100 things to do in the Gardens”.

There’s just one catch for those of a generation that doesn’t visit Facebook – to access the full list, you’ll have to sign up to the website, and go to the Botanic Gardens Facebook page.

Here are just a few of the suggestions – “see the elusive Macleay swallowtail butterfly in the rainforest gully”, “search for the yeti tree”, “explore the western Mallee section” and “travel around Oz in an hour”. That last one has us intrigued.

“It took us the whole Centenary year to compile the list, but here it is, the entire summary of 100 things visitors can do here in the Gardens,” the Gardens’ marketing manager Julie Akmacic says.

We’ll take that with a grain of salt.
