Guided Walks and Tours

A guided walk through the beautiful North Coast Regional Botanical Garden at Coffs Harbour is very worthwhile. The 2-hour walk provides visitors with an introduction to the aims, objectives and history of the Garden as you are guided through the main botanical collections. All our guides are enthusiastic volunteers and are very capable of showing visitors the wonderful delights and panoramas of this subtropical garden.

FREE guided walks are available every 3rd Sunday of the month, commencing at 10am at the Garden entrance. You can also arrange a personalised guided walk through our Guiding Co-ordinator, Kay Stannard via her email:

For a nominal fee the People Mover is another way of seeing the Garden. We provide a driver and the vehicle holds 5 visitors comfortably. For more details of how to arrange this please read the downloadable Leaflet on this page.

Workshops for Garden Guides and members of the public who would like to learn more about our Botanic Garden, are held on the first Thursday of each month. Please meet at 10am at the Garden Cafe.

For further information, please contact Kay.
