Australian Botanic Garden

The Australian Botanic Garden, at Mt Annan, south west of Sydney, has plantings designed to display the diversity of the Australian flora.

While there we also visited the Australian PlantBank (photos below) which is located within the Garden. With an estimated 50 per cent of the world’s plant species under threat of extinction, PlantBank aims at safeguarding our plants from an uncertain future. It houses thermal efficient seed storage vaults, climate controlled glasshouses, state of the art laboratories, specialised teaching facilities etc. The photo below shows reflections in the building's stainless steel panels.
