Plant Science by Night

Join a fascinating behind-the-scenes tour of the Herbarium, Plant Pathology and DNA Laboratories

In the Herbarium, surrounded by over 1.2 million plant specimens, you’ll be shown specimens from Australia’s early explorers including those collected by Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander in 1770 on Cook’s first voyage to the Pacific.

The Library holds a collection of treasures including the first edition signed copy of On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin, and stunning folios of historical botanical illustrations.

Then, get up close with DNA in the Plant Pathology Laboratory! Learn about the fascinating work done here using new methods and technologies to explore plant biology on a molecular level.

A special event for National Science Week.
