Townsville City Council is excited to pilot a Friends of Botanics program during the 2023 year.  This program invites community members to assist in the maintenance and general upkeep of our beautiful gardens.

Current locations include the Dry Tropics Nursery Wellington St, Pimlico and Palmetum Botanic Gardens.

The 2023 program has reached its maximum participant capacity. However, we still accept registrations for a wait list beyond the pilot. If you're interested in joining the waitlist, please let us know, and we'll keep you informed of any updates.

I would like to volunteer within *
