The Norfolk Island Botanic Garden is a beautiful collection of plants endemic to Norfolk Island.
The original garden was owned by Mrs Pat Moore and covered 0.6 hectares. Mrs Moore (nee Annie Eliza Kirkpatrick) moved to Norfolk Island from New Zealand in 1949. She purchased the property planted numerous species of plants found only on Norfolk Island - which began the collection which was to become the basis for the Norfolk Island Botanic Garden.
Before she returned to New Zealand in 1975, Mrs. Moore ensured that her hard work, dedication and vision would not be lost to future generations of Norfolk Island residents and visitors, by making it possible for the Norfolk Island Administration to take over the management of the area.
The garden aims to develop and display a collection of Norfolk Island's unique flora with a strong emphasis on increasing knowledge, appreciation and enjoyment of Australia's plant heritage.
