Rare guided tour at the ‘other’ arboretum

Share Canberra's trusted news:

NAMADGI National Park is home to the ‘other’ arboretum, according to ACT parks ranger, Brandon Galpin and Friends of ACT Trees member, Dr John Turnbull. 

Mr Galpin and Dr Turbull will be running the rare free tour which will include a walk through some of the best examples of mature conifers in the world.

Mr Galpin says: “This is a fantastic opportunity to see the arboretum which was established in 1940 and is now the sole surviving sub-alpine arboretum in the region.

“We are particularly proud to showcase the magnificent spring colours of the deciduous species like Larch and European Limes.

“The native wildflowers are also stunning and well worth seeing as we walk into the Arboretum, through the native montane and alpine vegetation.”
