Many of the exhibitions provide a new context for understanding and appreciating native flora, learning about the many roles of the ANBG, appreciating people's perceptions of native flora, and becoming aware of threats and their consequences to native flora and the environment.


  • The Colour of Eucalyptus

    Until 25 June

    An exhibition by Sally Blake of 330 pieced works along with pressed leaves, drawings and coloured yarns to represent the beauty of nature derived from our most iconic and dominant trees, eucalypts. Dyes collected from 100 species of eucalypts were used to discover and record a splendid array of colours using seven different fabrics.

    • Artworks were created from Sally Blake’s eucalyptus dye research undertaken at the Gardens in 2016.
