A new centre of innovation in plant sciences will be built at the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annum in Sydney’s west.  A $60million package will fund building the state of the art centre that will become the home of the national herbarium of NSW.

The facility will be purpose-built to protect the gardens’ nationally and internationally significant collection of more than 1.4 million plant specimens dating back to those collected by Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander on Cook’s voyage in 1770. Construction is expected to start in 2019 and the centre is scheduled to open in 2022.
