Eat, Drink, Shop

The Australian Botanic Garden provides a number of experiences for visitors including retail shopping at the Visitor Centre and dining at Melaleuca House.

Retail shopping

Located in the heart of the Garden, the Visitor Centre has a unique range of products including Australian bush food, skincare, Australian designed giftware, plants for your own garden and more.

It is a must for those travelling overseas looking for Australian gifts, or those travelling to Australia looking for a momento to take home.

The Visitor Centre is open every day from 9.00 am to 4.00 pm (excluding some public holidays).

Melaleuca House

Melaleuca House is set in the heart of the Australian Botanic Garden, next to the Visitor Centre, and serves weekend breakfast, gourmet burgers, pastas, salads, focaccias, great coffee and more.

Melaleuca House is more than a restaurant; it is a meeting place and a cosy spot to relax with a light refreshment while you explore the Garden.

Dine indoors or outdoors in our casual courtyard area.
