Help create an Australian bush garden

The National Museum’s 2018 Annual Appeal is helping 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 manniferaXanthorrhoea glaucaBanksia blechnifolia and hakea.
