The Australian National Botanic Gardens is one of 5 botanic gardens to feature on new 60 cent stamps issued by Australia Post. The stamps went on sale on 23 April 2013. More details are in the media release by Australia Post.
If you are planning a trip to the ANBG soon, be sure to wander up (or take the Flora Explorer) beyond the Eucalypt lawn to where staff of the ANBG (and a bit of heavy machinery) are working on our magnificent Red Centre Garden. You will be rewarded with a fine view of some Sturt's Desert Pea (Swainsona Formosa) in glorious flower, an example of the 'Boom and Bust' cycle of plant reproduction in the arid centre of Australia.
Visitors to the Australian National Botanic Gardens will, from later this year, be able to experience its new Red Centre Garden showcasing the iconic significance of the continent's red centre as the physical and spiritual heart of Australia, right here in the nation's capital.
To bring together some activities and contributions by the Friends that have emerged in the last few years it has been decided to establish a Plant Science group. This will be the umbrella for the more research oriented activities of the Friends in the future.This group will welcome those who have an interest in the more scientific side of the gardens and native plants.
