The Botanic Gardens in Canberra will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday 14 February to assess the tree damage after the violent storm this afternoon.

Several large trees are down in the vicinity of the public car park and Visitor Centre and we are still assessing the damage elsewhere in the Gardens. Some fallen trees have brought others down and some are hanging over paths making it unsafe for visitors.

When the Gardens are assessed as being safe for visitors they will be
re-opened and a public announcement made to the press.
