The National Rock Garden relies on support from our donors, volunteers and friends to achieve our goal of being a world-class exhibition of Australia’s unique geological heritage and a science and tourism facility for the nation.

As a not-for-profit organisation the NRG needs your help.



The National Rock Garden is building its rock collection and displays at a prime location within the National Arboretum Canberra. Funding is required to transport and prepare rock displays, lay out the garden and compile the supporting educational information.
