Twenty-three botanical artists, members of the famed Whirlies, participated in the project, with each completing an illustration of a species that they have since donated to the State Botanical Collection in the RBGV National Herbarium of Victoria.

The aim of The Acacia Project was to study and record a selection of the rare and endangered Acacias growing in RBGV Melbourne.

If planning to visit the exhibition on Thursday 31 August, you may like to book in to the Opening function.
