The Royal Botanic Gardens is a major botanical garden located in the heart of Sydney, Australia. The garden is the oldest scientific institution in Australia and one of the most important historic botanical institutions in the world. Its stunning position on Sydney Harbour and immediately adjacent to the Sydney Opera House ensure it is one of the most stunning gardens in the world.
Founded in 1816, this gem is the oldest garden of its kind in Australia. It has an outstanding collection of flora from the whole world though with a little emphasis on species from the Oceania. We think it is well worth your time.
Every bit of this garden stands out. However, we think these chosen delights are a ‘must see’ when visiting.
The 1885 Glasshouse – This house will blow you away with its collection of begonias, hoyas and orchids flowering among tropical plants with their abundant foliage. Even more captivating, is the fernery that displays over 200 species of ferns inside just a single garden.
Palm Grove – Here, you will see more than 300 species of palm. Almost all of these are now very rare. They exist amongst a collection of Australian rainforest trees planted in the early 1800s, including an Australian conifer holding the record of the garden’s tallest tree.
Wollemi pine – This is a variety of the southern hemisphere conifer once very common in Gondwanaland. Discovered by David Noble in 1994, this pine probably is the closest relationship you will ever have with a dinosaur.
Cadi Jam Ora: First Encounters – This is a 52-metre garden display interpreting the Aboriginal heritage of the Sydney Botanical Garden. Lying amidst native vegetation, some as old as 200 years, this award-winning garden has stories telling the first encounters between European settles and indigenous communities.
