In the late 18th century, the discovery of a new continent filled with exotic plants unknown to the rest of the world created waves of excitement in the field of botany. The Australian Botanic Garden displays approximately 2000 of these plants via themed gardens across the site as well as the Connections Garden, a four-hectare intensely cultivated space right in the heart of the Garden. Other features of the Garden include a restaurant, visitor centre with gift shop, free gas barbecues and acres of Cumberland Plain Woodland to explore. Come Spring, the paper daisies become an attraction for visitors. Various species of Waratahs will be flowering too. After seeing the floral display, we will walk to the Sundial, Mount Annan Peak, the Blue Tree before leaving the Garden to visit Lake Yandel'ora before catching the bus home. Expect a long day.

Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPublic Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.This walk will be led by Graham Conden on behalf of John Hain. All bookings to John. A ramble through the steep sided upper section of Lane Cove NP via some little used tracks, including passing by the very source of the Lane Cove River, and a visit to the very pretty Coups Creek. Beautiful bushland, mostly shaded. Some minor creek crossings (hopefully with dry feet, rain dependent). Walking sticks handy for some steep descents.
