From AUD


Apply to join the Friends of the Botanic Gardens Cairns Inc. and become part of the Gardens community, make new friends, get involved and have the satisfaction of helping to connect people with plants.

Monthly Meetings
Our meetings on the second Wednesday evening of every month feature guest speakers in a diverse range of areas and are an opportunity to socialise over supper with other Friends.

Special Events
We encourage members to be active in the various events we organise, such as previews and openings, the Starry Night Cinema, musical events such Jazz Under the Stars, garden tea parties and the annual Christmas Party. Field trips are planned several times a year to allow Friends to visit special gardens or other site of botanical interest.
