Online 12 Month Pass Renewals

12 Month Passes can be renewed year after year, so please do not discard them.

Online 12 Month Pass Renewal Information
  • Passes can only be renewed AFTER they have expired.
  • Pass-holders require their 18-digit pass number to enter.
  • In Pass Renewals, Pass-holders have the option of creating their own personal account.  An account allows pass-holders to view their pass expiry date, and edit addresses and contact information.
  • The renewed pass will become valid for 365 days after you have received the emailed confirmation.  To get the most out of your pass, we recommend that pass-holders wait until they are about to return to the Gardens for a visit before renewing their pass.

When does your pass expire?

  • Pass-holders can simply use their pass until the time that our admission gate attendant informs you that it has expired.  You can then renew your card at the admission gate.
  • We have installed a self-serve scanner in the Information Centre that will display your expiry date when you swipe your pass through it.
  • You can create a pass-holder account for yourself in Renewals online, and view the expiry date in your account.
