The Gardens has launched an exciting new project that has been strongly supported and assisted by the Friends. The Find a Plant application (FAP) will help visitors, staff and researchers to locate specific plants growing in the Gardens. The application will show all plants that are in publicly accessible sections.

This project has been developed with funding and other support from the Friends of ANBG. Acknowledgments for a lot of hard work are due to ANBG staff and volunteers. Many Friends have provided feedback during the design and development phase.

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 over $1.2 million on projects in the Gardens and now have over 2500 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.
