Parks and Gardens

Australian National Botanic Gardens
The aim of the ANBG is to "grow, study and promote Australia's flora" - and this site seems to have it all! Topics include growing Australian plants, the use of plants by Australian Aboriginals, floral emblems of Australia, information and material for teachers, students and the more serious botanist.

Kings Park and Botanic Garden
This park is the most important recreational parkland and urban bushland in Western Australia. It is unique because of its size, its remnant bushland and significant cultural heritage, its far ranging vistas, and its proximity to the centre of the city of Perth. The site contains pictures of the park, volunteer information, a calendar of upcoming events and activities, and plant facts.

National Rhododendron Gardens
These gardens are located in the Melbourne's Dandenong Ranges, and the website contains basic information about the gardens - history, location, opening hours, etc. - and links to other rhododendron websites.

Norfolk Island Botanic Gardens

Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney
Established in 1816 and located in central Sydney, The Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney is Australia's oldest botanic gardens, and is dedicated to research, education and display.
