Pangarinda Botanic Garden

Parks and Gardens

This Botanic Garden is a link in a chain of endeavour to conserve Australia’s threatened flora.
Winter is one of the best times to visit Pangarinda as there is a such a huge collection of hakeas growing there and now is the time when most are flowering.

When visiting, make time to walk the marked walkway, it will take walkers from the information bay through plants of WA into the Oympic 2000 plantings of local vegetation. When the Tailem Bend School Pupils started planting in 2000 there were only weeds. Today the walk takes you through a bush land of favourite places for many of our bird life. Watch out for the small quails that scoot across from one bush to another. Also the noisy babblers, flying low from one bough to another. Note the danger calls from the New Holland Honey eaters when birds of prey fly past.

In May look out for Robin Red Breasts hopping along the fence, as well as a Golden Whistlers, giving their beautiful calls as they flit amongst the acacias.
Visit a collection of Australian plants that is amongst some of the best.
