An exhibition of paintings of a diverse range of wildlife from birds, marsupials, insects to marine life by the Friends of the Gardens Botanic Art Group.

For many years now the Friends’ Botanic Art Group has annually presented an exhibition of delicately illustrated native flora. From time to time artists’ work has also featured wildlife as well as plants, which has proved to be very popular with the public.

This year it was decided, for the very first time, to mount an additional exhibition featuring native wildlife exclusively. Artists have been excited by the opportunity to paint native fauna. All paintings are for sale.
