Australian National Botanic Gardens

How do plants make new plants? What are flowers for? And why do bees and other insects like them so much?

Play our pollination game to answer these questions and more.

Observe pollinators in action in the Gardens and discover:

  • the different parts of a flower
  • how plants attract animals to help them make seeds
  • the different Australian animals that act as pollinators.

Explore the important role of Australian insects and find out how we can help protect pollinators at home and school.
