Overview
More
Myall Park Botanic Garden is more than a beautiful place where people can find respite and inspiration. It is a refuge for biological treasures from all around Australia, an outdoor classroom where people can acquire knowledge and motivation to be stewards of the plant and animals in our communities. Myall Park Botanic Garden is in an ideal location to feature Australian plants from semi-arid, arid and dry tropical regions. Soil types differ throughout the Garden and range from neutral softer grey brigalow soil, light loams over clays, to red lateritic acid gravel ridge. A significant feature of the ridge is the deep grey/blue water holding layer of clay which allows for the cultivation of deep rooted large trees.
