We are a diverse group of people who love and support our beautiful Gardens – the world’s largest collection of Australian native plants. We have an extensive program of talks, visits and social events. There are many opportunities for members and visitors to meet, learn, grow and enjoy the riches of this very special place. This website will help you find events that most interest you.

We were formed in 1990 as a community support group for the Gardens. Since then we have raised and spent around $3/4 million on projects in the Gardens and now have 1700 members. And we support the Gardens in many other ways, such as leading guided walks to show visitors the wonders of the Gardens, and hands on support of research programs.
