The garden was established in 1995 by Tamworth Regional Council with over 28 hectares of gardens occupying parts of Victoria and Oxley Parks. The Tamworth Regional Botanic Garden is supported by an active community group – the Friends of the Botanic Garden.
The garden is a display but also aims to conserve the flora of the region. There’s a lot to see while you are there, including the excellent lookout, the bush chapel, native gardens surrounding the ponds, and the new Asian garden. The gardens also feature an indoor exhibition space with Aboriginal artefacts. There are walking tracks, picnic areas, toilets and the park is wheelchair accessible.
The Botanic Garden is located at the very top of Piper Street and admission is free.
