Burrendong Botanic Garden and Arboretum

Overview

Burrendong Botanic Garden and Arboretum has one of the largest collections of Australian plants in cultivation. Over 50,000 flowering plants, shrubs and trees from more than 2,000 species are growing on 164 hectares overlooking the beautiful Lake Burrendong. The Arboretum's mission is to preserve and promote Australia's unique flora. Many rare and endangered species are being grown there.

The Arboretum was established in 1964, and has proven to be especially successful at growing plants from Western Australia and areas of low rainfall. It has received worldwide recognition for its remarkable collection of Australian plants and its pioneering role in the cultivation and promotion of our unique flora.

At all times there are some native plants in flower but from late winter to early summer the Arboretum explodes into colour as the hakeas, grevilleas and wattles are in bloom.

Indoor plant lovers will love the collection of sub tropical plants.
