The story of the Dunedin Botanic Garden

The rose garden, the glasshouse (called the winter garden), the statues, the fountain in Shakespeare’s garden, the duck pond and the ducks, hmmm which reminds me, the aviary!
These are just a few of my favourites in the botanic garden which was established over 140 years ago and covers 28 hectares.
Read all about the fascinating story behind New Zealand’s first botanic garden in Eric Dunlop’s The story of the Dunedin botanic Garden. Copies available at most libraries.
