National Arboretum Canberra


The AIDS Garden of Reflection

The proposed plans for the AIDS Memorial Garden at the Arboretum

The AIDS Garden of Reflection is a living tribute to those lost to AIDS and in support of those living with HIV.

Designed as a place of contemplation, the garden provides an opportunity for families, friends and supporters to honour those lost to HIV and AIDS, heal, reflect and develop hope.

It has been designed to provide a sense of calm and comfort, a special haven featuring an arbour, shallow rock pond, benches and rock seating for visitors to enjoy the views and surrounding landscape.

The garden was made possible through years of fund raising and advocacy by a group of people living with HIV, their families and friends, and the support of the AIDS Action Council and their patron John Mackay AM. Designed by John Patrick Landscape Architects Pty Ltd. Constructed by Able Landscaping Pty Ltd in 2017.
