Ghostly Garden

A spooky after-dark stroll through the Royal Botanic Garden.

The Royal Botanic Garden is known for its serenity and breathtaking scenery during the day. But there's a spookier side to the garden that people rarely get to see.

Once a month until November, Ghostly Garden will open up the gates after hours for an exclusive night of frights. Prepare yourself for creepy tales of the garden's past as you walk through the eerie grounds. After the sun goes down, a guide will take you on an adventure through the garden and tell you about the spirits that haunt your surroundings. BYO torch.

This is a rare chance to see the Royal Botanic Garden in another light — or lack of. Ghostly Gardeners will meet at the Woolloomooloo Gates where they'll start a twilight journey with the ghosts of the garden. And we suggest comfy shoes so you're ready for any amount of walking through — or running away on — uneven terrain.
