Royal Botanic Gardens

AND30+12 D12*+11(9)@ Sydney@Australia


The Botanic Gardens were founded on this site by Governor Macquarie in 1816 as part of the Governor’s Domain. Australia's long history of collection and study of plants began with the appointment of the first Colonial Botanist, Charles Fraser, in 1817. The Botanic Gardens is thus the oldest scientific institution in Australia and, from the earliest days, has played a major role in the acclimatisation of plants from other regions.
