Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne is widely admired as a living work of art and one of the world’s most beautiful botanic gardens. Within the Gardens are specially curated Living Collections. Our Living Collections are made up of accurately identified, documented and labelled plants for conservation, display, education, interpretation and research. Some Collections are in a specific location in the Gardens, for example the New Zealand Collection or the Australian Forest Walk, others are distributed throughout the gorgeous plantings in garden beds, or as signature specimens in lawns.
