Free Burnley Gardens walks to celebrate Botanic Gardens Day

Author and HMAA member Michèle Adler will lead two free walks of Burnley Gardens (University of Melbourne, Burnley campus, 500 Yarra Boulevard, Burnley), using her book, Burnley Gardens, as a guide. The walks on May 26 are part of a full day of celebrations for Botanic Gardens Day.

The day runs from 10.30am to 3pm. The walks are at 11am and 2pm. The two walks are different. There will also be a free guided walk of the Burnley Green Roof Garden with new Campus Director, Claire Farrell, at 12.30pm.

Signed copies of Burnley Gardens, which won an HMAA Book Laurel this year, will be available for sale on the day for $50 each. There will also be plants, pre-loved books and refreshments for sale.
