Cyclone Tracy was a dark time in the history of Darwin city. Among the many lives and landmarks it claimed, one such casualty was the George Brown Botanic Gardens. Named after their most beloved curator, the 92 acre botanical land is rife with vegetation of the Top End area. Vine forests, boabs, mangroves and native and exotic palms are just some of the flora you’ll come across here. Self guided tour maps and bird watching guides are available at the visitors’ centre.

Nice cafe in an historic building on the entrance to the botanical garden. Had a relaxed breakfast at approx 9AM on a Saturday. Enough variation for us, and quick service. Nice outdoor seating with canopy and fans made this a great way to start a tourist day. The gardens behind it is also worth a good look.
One star for lovely location. We had to wait 50 minutes for two omelettes. During this time nobody bothered to clean our table. I actually had to ask the staff to do that. The place was not even half full so I see no reason for this situation. The food was insipid and serving was offhand.

Very lovely staff. Beautiful location. Excellent food and drinks. All very nice and popular too.
What a little gem this place is. Between the three of us we had a kimchi omelette, ham breakfast board and poached eggs tomato and thick cut belly bacon. Generous servings, fairly priced, and really nice. Very happy, and would definitely come back.
