The National Arboretum Canberra aims to become one of the great arboreta in the world; a place of outstanding natural beauty, community amenity and scientific value.

The National Arboretum Canberra is home to 94 forests of rare, endangered and symbolic trees from Australia and around the world. More than 48,000 trees grow on the 250 hectare (618 acres or 2.5 million square metres) site, with species from over 100 countries represented.
