Australian Inland Botanic Gardens
These gardens, situated on the New South Wales side of the Murray River near Mildura, are one of the few community run botanic gardens. Established in 1989, the first planting was in 1991. The gardens showcase a range of Australian natives from both arid and higher rainfall areas as well as exotic plantings grouped in country of origin. Also featured is an area developed with salt-tolerant native plants which have thrived and lowered the water table considerably; a network of walking tracks and a rose garden displaying more than 1,600 plants. The historic homestead is open on the weekend and light refreshments are available. This building was originally the split-log homestead at Garnpang Station, 153 km from Mildura. Built in 1840, it was relocated and opened as a visitor centre, meeting space and library in 1993.
The collection includes the Sunraysia Oasis Botanic Garden.
