Botanic Gardens & Centennial Parklands
As Australia’s oldest living scientific institution we have a leading team of scientists conducting ground-breaking botanical research and providing expertise as world leaders in our fields of plant pathology, botany, ecology, genetics and wildlife research.
Our living collection of plants from across the globe and Australia are an important part of our conservation initiatives as they maintain plants away from their natural habitat, as an additional insurance policy against their loss. For the purposes of conservation, living collections may exist so that seeds or vegetative material can be collected which is then used in restoration projects, research, education as well as horticultural development and display.
Our inspiring video conferences use our living collection and allow you to participate in a collaborative learning experience with our passionate educators and connect with renowned botanical experts. Our highly interactive workshops make plant science and conservation accessible through the use of plant materials and microscopes directly through your screen.
Connect with us to make plant science and conservation come alive in your classroom.
