Mt Annan Botanic Garden Visit

Twelve members met at the Plant Bank Entrance and enjoyed a very informative and educational tour with lunch at the cafe afterwards.

“The Australian PlantBank is a science and education facility of the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust and is located at the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan. This impressive building houses the Trust’s seedbank and research laboratories that specialise in conservation, restoration and horticultural research of Australian native plant species, particularly those from New South Wales.

Visitors can immerse themselves in the workings of our scientists by seeing into the laboratories aided by award-winning interpretation which starts from the minute they enter they approach from the carpark. The experience is enhanced by downloading the PlantBank app. Children are particularly welcome but must be accompanied by an adult”.
