Plant Hunters Walk at Mount Lofty Botanic Garden

Plant exploration and introduction is one of the oldest activities of mankind. The plant hunters were not just botanists, they were adventurers and explorers. They had to be tough to survive the conditions they faced in far-flung corners of the world. They survived shipwrecks, sieges, slavery and battled with pirates and escaped convicts. The history of the plant collection at Mount Lofty Botanic Garden is enriched by this fascinating history. In this presentation and curator-led tour, learn about the secrets entwined in the plant collections, while enjoying the beauty of autumn colour at the iconic Mount Lofty Botanic Garden.
