Balancing the past, present and future of Williamstown Botanic Gardens

Established in 1860, the Williamstown Botanic Garden was one of Melbourne's first public gardens. Together we will explore what it takes to maintain it.

Have you considered the history hidden behind those impressive iron gates of the Williamstown Botanic Garden? Join Curator Eliasha and Program Development Officer Loraine, as they talk us through how they are planning for future climate events, whilst maintaining a heritage listed garden. Guided by research being done around the world and especially within the Science Division at Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, the Williamstown Botanic Gardens are currently in an exciting time in their history.
