The Gardens is an inner suburb of the city Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia.

This suburban name is derived from the Botanic Gardens which began with the appointment of Maurice Holtze in 1878 and has grown to have one of the largest known collections of palms. Holtze used the Gardens area to investigate the possibility of growing sugar cane and cotton in the Territory.

A small residential area adjacent to the Botanical Gardens was called Palmerston Gardens in 1968, but to avoid confusion with the �new� Palmerston, the Palmerston appellation was discarded in 1984 when the suburb was officially named. (Source: Wiki)
