Adelaide Botanic Garden has been announced as a 'Garden of the World Worth Travelling For in 2024' at the International Garden Tourism Awards.
Australia's Virtual Herbarium (AVH) links databases relating to millions of specimens in Australia's major herbaria. It is the only online database depicting plant distributions for an entire continent.
The AVH arose from the Council of Heads of Australasian Herbaria's advisory committee HISCOM and its preceding working groups in the late 1980s. The first prototype was developed as part of the eFloraSA project in 1997-98 in a close collaboration between the State Herbarium and the Computing Sciences Department, University of Adelaide (now a partner in eResearch SA).

Have you ever driven past the beautiful heritage-listed Goodman Building when passing the Garden on Hackney Road? Did you know this building was formerly the base for the Municipal Tramways Trust but now serves as the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium administration building.
