GumFest! Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha (Qld)

20 March 2022


Join us for a family-friendly celebration of the eucalypt – one of our national botanic treasures. Learn more about our magnificent gum species and the amazing wildlife they support.

There are talks, guided walks, workshops and activities for both kids and adults – try some gum leaf and nut art and craft; taste-test gum leaf tea (and other bush brews) and species-specific eucalypt honey; follow our gum tree story trail; learn which gums are best for your backyard; and enjoy tapping your feet to the tunes of the Rantan Bush Band… we have a range of activities for all the family to enjoy!

We’re putting on a shuttle bus at the Visitor Information Centre to take you up to the Australian Plant Communities carpark, or you can follow the gum leaves along the adventure trail! Tasty snacks and cold drinks will be available for purchase up at the festival site. See you there!
