Mount Annan Botanic Garden is the Australian native plant garden of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney. It covers 410 hectares, making it the largest botanic garden in Australia and the most visited tourism attraction in the Macarthur area. Up until 1984 when the Gardens acquired the site it was grazing farmland. The first plantings were made in 1985, and the Garden was opened to the public in 1988 by the Duchess of York.
The plantings are designed to display the diversity of Australian flora and will eventually include many of our 25,000 known plant species. The Garden is also one of the premier outdoor events venues in South West Sydney. The Garden hosts Campbelltown City Challenge Walk in March, the Autumn Plant Sale (famous in Sydney for the sale of native plants) in April as well as several other events. Check the website for more information regarding upcoming events.
