Events and Catering

Join the Events and Activities Group. This group is just part of an exciting range of activities and events the Friends run for their members. The Friends support the Botanic Gardens providing financial and volunteer support for projects and events. Love the Gardens? Join the Friends! 
The Events committee is a group of about 12 members of the Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne who organise the Friends' Quarterly Events Calendar.  The responsibility of the Events Committee is to provide a full and varied program during the year for the Friends.

They plan 
Events which include Illustrated Talks, Guided Walks, Fit Friends' Rambles and hands-on Workshops.  Events are held in Mueller Hall at the National Herbarium, located in the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, Domain House in Dallas Brooks Drive, Gate Lodge opposite the Shrine, The Plant Craft Cottage and occasionally (eg Christmas Cocktails) at Gardens House (pictured above) also located in the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne.

The committee also coordinates the organisation of the Events and manages the running of them including Catering if required.
