The official purpose of the gardens is : "Growing, studying and promoting Australia's flora". It is in practice much more than that. They offer lots of activities to the public (for instance free concerts every January Sunday and Saturday evenings).

For me it is a place of calm and relaxation just 5 min walk away from my work. Just to remind that this safe place is indeed in the middle of the town, I Included the Telecom tower, the main Canberra Landmark.

Take a look at my panorama homepage (not yet finished, but the panos file are there...)

Le role officiel des Jardins Botaniques Nationaux Australiens est de : "Cultiver, Etudier et Promouvoir la flore Australienne". En pratique, les jardins offrent bien plus que cela au public. A titre d'exemple, il es possible de pique-niquer au son d'un groupe de Jazz ou de musique classique tous les Samedi et Dimanche Soir de Janvier (Notez bien sur que c'est le plein été à Canberra à cette époque...).

Pour ma part, les jardin m'apportent un lieu de calme et de relaxation (et de fraîcheur aussi), à 5min de mon travail, à pied. Et pour rappeler que ce havre de paix se trouve en fait au coeur de la ville, j'ai placé à dessein au centre de l'image la tour des télécoms, un des bâtiments dominant de Canberra
