Experience the magic of Christmas at the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens with the much-loved train returning to take passengers on a magical Christmas journey.

George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens Director, Bryan Harty said the train is back with new exciting destinations to explore throughout the Gardens.
