Australian Inland Botanic Gardens

1183 River Road, Buronga NSW 2739
Established in 1991, the beautiful Australian Inland Botanic Gardens are located near Mildura and have been created by a group of can-do volunteers with a passion for nature and the chance to make a positive difference in their community. The iconic 2500 year old mallee tree takes pride of place among the new plantings which have been arranged by continental region. Developed by visionaries as a place for education and research, it has become a unique place for people needing an outlet for their creative energies and a high quality resource for schools and disadvantaged groups. Tourists can find plenty to enjoy from a wander through the gardens to a browse through the 19th century outback station buildings, buy a light lunch and sip coffee or a cold drink under the mallee trees. A special breakfast is available on the fourth Saturday of every month with tractor train tours complete with informative commentary offered, making it the ideal spot for a get together with family of friends. The increasingly popular Magenta Shearing Shed facility offers a venue with a difference for your special event or wedding set in the rustic charm of the outback with all the expected modern facilities including a state of the art kitchen, while the Bush Chapel is the perfect place for a wedding service The huge Rose Garden is a great place for wedding photos or maybe just a walk among the glorious scented beds of colour with your camera. The Nature Trail should satisfy the most passionate native plant enthusiast and bird lovers will be amazed at the diversity of birds that have made AIBG their home. Entry is free but donations are encouraged to help the vision unfold. Come and see Australian Inland Botanic Gardens for yourself.

Buronga

Buronga, Buronga NSW 2739
Noted explorer Captain Charles Sturt and his party were almost certainly the first white men to pass by the future site of Buronga during their historic exploration of the Murray River in the 1830s. After that, an increasing number of Europeans passed through, the majority overlanders (drovers) taking stock to the Adelaide markets, but others were pioneering graziers taking up the 'vacant' Crown Land between the Murray and the Lower Darling Rivers. Buronga, as we know it today, was part of the huge Tapio run, formed when the Federal Government decided to formalise lease rights to the land in the 1840s. This area is situated on the Sturt Highway, just five minutes from Mildura....
