The Australian National Botanic Gardens maintains a scientific collection of native plants from all parts of Australia.
The plants are displayed for the enjoyment and education of visitors and are used for research into plant classification and biology.
A herbarium of preserved plant specimens is closely associated with the living collection.
The Gardens also cultivates plants threatened in the wild. This helps protect them against extinction and provides information which might assist re-introduction to their natural habitat.
The Gardens have a range of volunteering opportunities available to support its important role. For anyone interested in the natural environment and learning about Australia’s own incredible environment, these are the opportunities for you!
