Australian Plants Revealed
65,000 years of traditional plant use and 250 years of science

With assistance from the national Herbarium of Melbourne, this exhibition will feature six of the actual specimens and 31 images of plants collected by Banks and Solander in 1770. Afterwards all the framed images will be donated to the Melbourne Herbarium so they can be displayed without risking damage to the precious 250-year-old specimens.

The exhibition will also recognise the vast indigenous uses of these plants and celebrate the long history of Australia’s First Nation peoples.
