A stunning garden with a small lake in the middle. Palm trees line the horizon.

Awaken your senses at the new Sensory Garden opening at the Royal Botanic Gardens this Thursday 17 December. The new garden is an immersive oasis where you can disconnect from city life and get your zen on. 

Take it slow through the intense, colourful flowers and scents to help you relax and reconnect with nature by the beautiful central lake. You can chill out and make friends with the local snails, butterflies and bees and tell your phone to buzz off for a moment. The garden has been designed to connect with your senses through smell, touch, sound and site so you can lose yourself in the garden. 

Along with the recently opened Arid Garden, The Sensory Garden is part of the 20 year plan for the Royal Botanic Gardens and has been designed by the landscape architect Andrew Laidlaw. It’s accessible for wheelchair users and is designed to benefit Melburnians’ health and wellbeing after 2020—and we can all agree we need some R&R amongst nature.
