Book Direct with the Owner at Olive Pink Botanic Garden with Accommodation Redcliffe in Alice Springs, for all your Attraction and travel needs.
Olive Pink Botanic Garden is Australia's only arid zone botanic garden. Located adjacent to the Todd River and not far from the centre of Alice Springs, it is a great place to wander along trails to see the hundreds of plant species that are native to the Red Centre. There are over 500 Central Australian plant species to see as you wander around the 16hectare garden. Learn more about the founder Miss Pink or desert habitats and plants from the interpretation material around the garden or by going on one of the self-guided walks. After heavy rainfall the garden comes alive with wildflowers and attracts many species of butterflies and birds. Euros (hill kangaroos) are regularly seen grazing here and the threatened black-footed rock wallaby resides in the rocky hill habitat. Western bowerbird bowers are at home and in summertime many different reptiles sun themselves within the grounds. Miss Olive Muriel Pink, anthropologist, Aboriginal rights campaigner and artist, was responsible for the gazettal of the garden area in 1956. Some of her original plantings still survive in the garden today. The Olive Pink Botanic Garden is a stop on the route of the Alice Wanderer hop-on, hop-off bus.
