Botanical gardens in Australia maintain a massive collection of well-kept living plants for conservation, research, education and display. They serve not only scientific but also artistic purposes. It is a fantastic place where the horticultural exhibits and the modern world get in touch with the botanical sciences to spread environmental awareness.
There is a broad network of botanical gardens across the world. All these places exchange information, plants and research, which means a seed collection from Botanical gardens in Australia could easily be swapped for an exhibition of herbs from the Royal Botanic Gardens in England.
Every botanical garden in Australia is different from each other and has their specialisation. Most of the botanical gardens focus on growing their own region’s plants. This is because the plants grow successfully in their native habitats.
Research institutes and government provide the fund to most of the botanical gardens, but no one can deny the importance of the general public as they are one of the most significant sources of income for these gardens. Every year, millions of visitors come to these gardens to experience the pleasurable escape from a stressful life. People participate in a gardening workshop and listen to a lecture on how to preserve the flora.
