Botanica Art Exhibition: Symbiosis
Saturday 21 April – Sunday 6 May, 10 AM – 4 PM daily
The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney
Australia’s leading contemporary botanical art exhibition Botanica returns to the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney in April 2018, exploring the complex and remarkable relationship we humans have with plants. The annual showcase, now in its 19th year, features work by some of the best Australian and international established and emerging botanic and natural history artists, Botanica is considered one of the foremost exhibitions of its kind.
The 2018 theme for Botanica is ‘symbiosis’. Artists have been invited to study the symbiotic relationships some plants have with other plants and animals, and incorporate this into their artworks.
Botanica is a beautiful art exhibition and encourages the sale of all its artworks. Proceeds from the sale of original and limited-edition prints go to the artists and to Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens, helping the not-for-profit organisation to continue to support horticulture, conservation, scientific research and education programs within your Botanic Gardens.
Botanica Opening Night, Friday 20 April, 6pm – 8pm: Tickets are now on sale!

Collectors’ Plant Fair Sydney 2018
Saturday April 7, 8am to 4pm
Sunday April 8, 9am to 4pm
Hawkesbury Race Club, 1 Racecourse Rd, Clarendon NSW
This year the fair will be bigger than ever with over 90 specialist growers from all across Australia. Long lost plants will be found and taken home to create beautiful gardens and indoor jungles.There will be thousands of plants, pickles, pots, books, quality garden workwear and delicious food. Make a day of it!
So many great plants never make it into garden centres. They might be hard to propagate, or slow to grow, or otherwise unsuited to large-scale commercial horticulture or they may simply have fallen out of favour. For whatever reason they are rare and unusual in the commercial world, and it is these treasures that are celebrated at the Collectors’ Plant Fair.
See plants, meet the growers, sip good coffee and get out, connect with your love of plants. Don’t miss out. Take a treasure home.
