The Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden will reopen to the public from Wednesday, October 13 with some new additions.

Garden manager Michael Anlezark welcomed the return of visitors to the popular venue and said staff couldn't wait to show off some new features put in during the lockdown.

"Garden staff have been working hard during the COVID lockdown, and we can't wait to show off our new barbeque area and inspiring Naturescape display gardens, which are just getting their finishing touches over the next couple of weeks," Mr Anlezark said.

"We've designed four gardens - formal, cottage, wildlife and coastal - which show gardeners how to use local plants in their own patch in ways that increase biodiversity, reduce maintenance and really suit our coastal way of life.

"They're just planted out now, so there's a bit of growing to do but give them a year or two and they'll be something special."

The eye-catching covered barbeque complex has been built from local timber, blackbutt and forest red gum.

It will keep keen cooks safe from the elements while sizzling up their bangers and burgers this summer.

Mr Anlezark said the garden had also taken the opportunity to upgrade its website and social media presence.

"Our new website looks stunning and is so much easier to navigate," he said.

"We are also prioritising our social media presence and we'll be directing a lot more content to Facebook and Instagram."
