Print this Page

Meet the World Famous Botanist from the 18th Century, at the Plant House in the Botanic Garden named in his honour. Sir Joseph Banks will take you on a stroll through the glass house (which displays plants from the Wet & Dry Tropics he visited) and then onto the native plant sections of the Garden.

The eminent Botanist will share with you- his experiences on Captain Cook's voyages of discovery to the Great Southern land. This humorous experience combines the use of theatre, history and the environment to tell an important story from our past.
