Collections include Australian Myrtaceae (Eucalyptus, Melaleuca,
Leptospermum, Callistemon and Kunzea) and Proteaceae (Banksia,
Grevillea, Hakea, Leucadendron, Leucospermum and Protea), and South
African Ericaceae (Erica), southern Western Australian wildflowers and
the South African fynbos (heathland).
The Australian collection features plants from the Fleurieu Peninsula
and Kangaroo Island, southern Western Australia and includes a fine
collection of eucalypts. Meandering pathways through the Terrace and
Sandplain Gardens give visitors the opportunity to see these distinctive
and colourful collections. Many different birds can be seen attracted by
the good supplies of nectar produced by the flowers of the plants.
Wittunga Botanic Garden is a popular place for family gatherings and
the shady lawns next to the lakeside make it a perfect place for
picnics. There are self-guided and guided walks in spring, see the website for
