The Curiosity Cabinet

The Curiosity Cabinet tells stories about the amazing plants in our collection.

The Curiosity Cabinet is a ‘Pit Glass House’ built in the 1860’s.  It is a rare example of the half basement design. It was built to acclimatise plants to Australian conditions.

We like to tell stories about the collection that compliment the plants in the gardens.

Currently on display


Spring is a great time for Orchids with both cultivars and species flowering. 

We have a small collection of orchids including the native Australian Dendrobiums often called rock orchids.
