The System Garden has been operating for over 160 years. Take this guided tour to discover its turbulent history and plans for its future.

The System Garden is often a place that features strongly in the memory of alumni as a secret and calm environment. It is the second largest open space on the Parkville campus and is a treasured, secluded and diversified green space.

This is an opportunity to learn about one of Australia's oldest teaching gardens still in operation and the Masterplan that will propel it into the future. Discover the Systems Garden's rare and threatened species and its diverse plant collections.
