The Australian Association of Friends of Botanic Gardens





Welcome to the Australian Association of Friends of Botanic Gardens. The logo of a eucalypt flower with many stamens represents all the members from across Australia, with some affiliates located overseas. 

The AAFBG is a not-for-profit incorporated association. It involves the community and supports the growth of Friends groups interested in the well-being and public appreciation of botanic gardens through their conservation and development, scientific, educational, historical, cultural and recreational functions. Members represent a range of botanic gardens and parks in regional and metropolitan areas throughout Australia. Friends groups located in botanic gardens overseas are welcome to be affiliate members.

Eucalypt Newsletter

Eucalypt is the AAFGB bi-annual newsletter produced in May and November and is an important means by which the Association and its members keep in touch.

Eucalypt is also an excellent resource document providing news on the ideas, innovation, challenges, events, successes, and failures of the members who contribute articles. Information from the Committee's activities, Botanic Gardens of Australia and New Zealand (BGANZ) and other matters of interest to Members are also included.

Eucalypt No 58

Joining the Association provides many benefits and pleasures for members.
