Tattooed hands with pink flowers.

Come for a wander or stay a while and enjoy our gardens at Ainslie + Gorman Arts Centres.

At the heart of Gorman Arts Centre are our two heritage courtyards, planted in the 1920s, which provide a quiet escape from the busy civic centre. Each courtyard has a magnificent Hawthorn tree at its centre and is surrounded with wisteria vines that bloom with purple flowers in the spring.

Ainslie Arts Centre is surrounded by open grassed areas and bordered by large oaks, cypress pines and classic hedges that provide shelter from the street.

We welcome the public to come and sit with us a while in the quiet of the Gorman gardens from the bustle of the Canberra CBD.
