MAJESTIC TREES IN HERITAGE BOTANIC GARDENS
Geelong Botanic Gardens, the fourth oldest botanic garden in Australia, was blessed with enthusiastic plant collectors for its early Curators. From their tentative
beginnings we now have impressive trees of splendid stature and beauty.
Plans for Geelong Botanic Gardens were proclaimed in 1851 making these Gardens the fourth oldest botanic gardens in Australia. They were established on Wadawurrung country and hold many plants used by our first peoples. The Gardens were listed on the Victorian Heritage Register in 2006. Trees planted by our avid-collecting first curators are now splendid trees of impressive size and beauty, many on the National Trust Significant Tree Register. As well you will see historic structures from our colonial days.
To learn their stories and appreciate the rarity, beauty and majesty of the trees, meet your guide at the entrance steps of the Gardens at the end of Podbury Drive, Geelong.
