A tour of our site in Sydney’s Darlinghurst will give you the chance to see Garvan’s state-of-the-art scientific facilities first hand, and learn how technology is enabling medical research to progress at an increasingly rapid rate.

Tours are open to the general public, but bookings are essential.
