The National Herbarium will move from its current location in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney to Mount Annan thanks to a $60 million investment from the NSW Government as part of the 2018 Budget.
The new, purpose-built Centre of Innovation in Plant Sciences at the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan will be the nation’s premier botanic science research facility. The Herbarium’s current building in Sydney, the Robert Brown Building, will be rejuvenated into a high-quality science, education and discovery centre, showcasing the world-renowned work of botanists and scientists.
The new Centre of Innovation in Plant Sciences will open in 2022. Public tours for the current Herbarium in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney are available here.
