Annual Appeal 2018

Help create our Australian bush garden

The National Museum’s 2018 Annual Appeal will help with the acquisition of plantings in our newly redesigned Forecourt.

The Forecourt will feature a bush garden filled with eucalypts, seasonal floral displays, shaded seating and a welcome to Country from the land’s traditional owners. Native plantings will include Eucalyptus mannifera, Xanthorrhoea glauca, Banksia blechnifolia and hakea.

Our vision

Over the coming decade, the National Museum has ambitious plans for expansion and regeneration. These plans begin with the redesign of the Forecourt.

Welcoming visitors to the Museum, this garden precinct will be an immersive, sensory representation of the Australian landscape.
