Description

Meet our Sir Joseph Banks character, the world famous 18th Century Botanist on a stroll through the Garden including our Glasshouse which is named in his honour.

On this fascinating theatrical tour you’ll learn about why the exotic tropic plants in our Glasshouse impressed this English naturalist all those years ago. Sir Joseph will then lead you through our native garden collections to highlight some of his important native plant discoveries.

The eminent Botanist will also share with you some of his experiences on Captain Cook's voyages of discovery to the Great Southern land nearly 250 years ago.

Please wear a hat and closed shoes for walk in the garden.

Minimum participants required: 10

Cancellation: We will cancel the workshop by 1pm the day before if minimum participants are not registered. If poor weather occurs, the decision to cancel will be made by 9am on the day of the workshop. In both circumstances, registered participants will be notified by email or phone.
