National Arboretum Canberra

Mid Winter at the Arboretum, 28 July, 4:00pm - 9:30pm

Spice things up this winter with hearty soups, mulled wine, outdoor adventures and live music at ‘Mid Winter at the Arboretum’.

Snuggle outside under the heaters enjoying the stunning views across Canberra; there are plenty of activities both inside and out.

This is a rare opportunity to join a guided sunset walk to the top of Dairy Farmers Hill, view the National Bonsai and Penjing Collection at night, browse the Curatoreum gift shop and  find your inner zen walking the labyrinth by candle light. Bring the children along in their winter woollies to make lanterns and go on an outdoor storytelling adventure by the fire.

General tickets include all activities and your choice of hearty soup and crusty bread or BBQ corn on the cob and mulled wine (non alcoholic, gluten-free and vegetarian options available).

VIP Experience includes all activities and a fabulous 2 course dinner in the Conservatory Restaurant, created by Ginger Catering. Supplied by Ginger Catering.
