      The National Arboretum Canberra features 94 forests of rare, endangered and symbolic trees from around Australia and the world. Many of the trees are still young but two of the forests are nearly 100 hundred years old. Over 44,000 trees from over 100 countries are growing across the huge 250 hectare (618 acre) site, making it one of the world's largest living collections of rare, endangered and significant trees.
      The Village Centre is the first point of arrival for many visitors at the Arboretum, offering an elegant and memorable welcome. This award-winning, architect-designed building with panoramic views over Canberra provides a variety of high-quality visitor services and facilities, including a restaurant, cafe, gift shop, information hub, and the National Bonsai and Penjing Collection.
      The unique nature-themed Pod Playground abuts the northern side of the Village Centre, and the Canberra Discovery Garden is located on the southern side.
      In time, the Arboretum will be home to 104 forests of rare, endangered and symbolic trees from Australia and around the world.
      The average size of the forests is 2 hectares (5 acres) and most consist of a single species of tree, or two species where a host forest is planted in conjunction with a rare or endangered species. When grown, the forests will provide visitors with the experience of being enveloped in a forest of one species of tree.
      Two of the forests are nearly one hundred years old - the cork oak forest (Quercus suber), planted 1917 - 1920; the Himalayan cedar forest (Cedrus deodara), planted 1917 - 1930.
      The National Arboretum Canberra was officially opened at a dawn ceremony on 1 February 2013 by Ms Katy Gallagher MLA, ACT Chief Minister, along with representatives of the Commonwealth Government. Also present were members of the Friends of the National Arboretum Canberra, site partners, members of the Strategic Advisory Board and many others who had made a significant contribution to the project.
      On 2 February 2013, over 15,000 visitors came to the Opening Day Festival. For the first time, the Canberra community and other visitors had a chance to see inside the completed Village Centre and see the National Bonsai and Penjing Collection in its new purpose-built pavilion.
      Since that day, over a million visitors of all ages and nationalities have explored the beauty and scale of the Arboretum's forests, landscapes and architecture.
      The Arboretum provides an opportunity to conserve threatened species and learn about their growing preferences. It also provides a place for community recreation and culture, ongoing education and research.
      In time, the Arboretum will be home to 104 forests of rare, endangered and symbolic trees from Australia and around the world.
