The Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan is the Australian native plant garden of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney and covers 416 hectares. The Garden features outdoor sculptures, free gas barbecues and picnic shelters, a restaurant and a gift shop which sells plants. The Australian Botanic Garden is a major event venue and the most popular visitor attraction in the Camden district.
The plantings are designed to take visitors on an exploration of Australia’s unique plant life with the Connections Garden being the premier Garden within the site. The four and a half hectare Connection Garden is a roofless museum demonstrating the way people and the natural world interconnect.
The Garden is also one of the premier outdoor events venues in South West Sydney and hosts AnnanROMA Food and Wine Festival in April and the largest Carols event in the region in December.
The Australian Botanic Garden is 57 km from Sydney CBD, about 45 minute drive from the city.
