The first farm on the Australian continent, ‘nine acres in corn’ at Farm Cove, was established in 1788 by Governor Phillip. Although the farm failed, the land has been in constant cultivation ever since. The Botanic Garden was established on this site in 1816 by Governor Lachlan Macquarie.

Our long history of collection and study of plants began with the appointment of the first colonial botanist, Charles Fraser, in 1817. The Botanic Garden is the oldest scientific institution in Australia and from the earliest days have housed a pre-eminent collection of plants collected from all over the world.
