Royal Botanic Garden Sydney

December 24, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

During the Christmas break, we visited the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney--64 hectares located harbourside near Mrs Macquarie's Chair, immediately adjacent to the Sydney CBD and the Sydney Opera House. The Garden, established 1816, is celebrating its 200th anniversary this year, currently visited by more than 3.5 million people each year. It is the oldest botanic garden and scientific institution in Australia housing an outstanding collection of plants (8,900 species) from around the world with a focus on Australia and the South Pacific. But, it also includes an herb garden with many common (e.g. basic and parsley) and exotic spice plants (e.g. Sweet Honey Leaf - Stevia rebaudiana).
