The Garden is located within the precincts of the Australian Centre of Christianity and Culture on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra, Australia's national capital.

The Bible Garden was established with a benevolent grant from The Bible Garden Trust, a perpetual trust established by the late Mr Gerald Hercules Robinson. The purpose of the trust was to create and maintain gardens that featured the botany that is described in the Holy Bible, and through this activity to educate Christians particularly young Christians in the Scriptures.

The shape of the garden resembles the The Menorah which is said to represent the burning bush where Moses saw the Angel who told him to lead the Israelites to the land of milk and honey. Construction of the Garden commenced in 2007.

The Bible Garden was officially opened at a ceremony at the Garden on Sunday 3 August 2008. Speakers included Sir William Deane, Reverend Professor James Haire and members of the Robinson family.
