Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit the National Arboretum Canberra for a tree planting ceremony on Thursday 24 April 2014. This is not a public event but a ballot process was conducted for 50 lucky members of the public to attend.
The Arboretum will be closed to the general public on the morning of the Royal visit (Thursday 24 April) until Their Royal Highnesses have departed. The Arboretum will reopen directly after the visit so that people can view the Royal English Oak that was planted by Their Royal Highnesses.
Due to the change in Daylight Savings Time, from Sunday 6 April 2014, the Arboretum grounds are open daily from 7 am to 5.30 pm. The Village Centre and Bonsai Collection are open daily from 9 am to 4 pm, as usual. We hope to see you at the Arboretum soon!
