Description

Without plants, life as we know it would cease to exist.

For almost two centuries, the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney has been collecting and studying plants from around the world. Scientists at the National Herbarium of NSW study how plants function within ecosystems, how plants are adapted to their environment and evolve over time, and what causes them to die.

On this special tour, you can join our passionate and knowledgeable plant scientists as they take you behind the scenes to share their work and some of the treasures of the Garden's collection.

5.30 - 6.00pm: We'll have welcome drinks and nibbles in Reception. Meet our Science staff and view the exhibition in the Red Box Gallery.

6.00 - 7.30pm: You'll be taken to three behind-the-scenes locations to learn the secrets of the science we do here at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.

Herbarium: View beuatiful plant specimens from Australia’s early explorers including those collected by Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander in 1770 on Cook’s first voyage to the Pacific.
