Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden

This 200ha collection of arid zone flora was opened in 1996.

Very impressive range of plants that grow with little or no water, although not surprisingly there's not a lot of height. Good location and set up for the gardens.

The 12 km of marked walking trails reveal over 900 plant species, including a large collection of eremophilas (around 155 species), as well as 100 bird types and many reptiles.

It includes Matthew Flinders Redcliff Lookout and Arid Lands Garden Lookout.
