Description

Booderee Botanic Gardens is located at Jervis Bay on the Australian east coast, and is the only Aboriginal-owned botanic gardens in Australia. The gardens, which are part of Booderee National Park, are jointly managed between the Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community Council and the Australian Director of National Parks. They include a unique setting of cultivated areas surrounded by natural bushland. The living collections contain more than 1,000 species of plants, all Australian native, most of them from South East Australia. The quintessential Australian tree, the eucalypt, is represented by no less than 100 different species, which, together, with many other forest and rainforest tree species makes for a valuable tree collection.
