Covering 5.5. hectares, the Norfolk Island Botanic Garden boasts a unique collection of plants endemic to Norfolk Island.

The original garden was owned by Mrs Pat Moore and covered 0.6 hectares. Mrs Moore (nee Annie Eliza Kirkpatrick) moved to Norfolk Island from New Zealand in 1949. She purchased the property and planted numerous species of plants found only on Norfolk Island, starting the the collection that became the basis for the Norfolk Island Botanic Garden.

Before she returned to New Zealand in 1975, Mrs Moore made it possible for the Norfolk Island Administration to take over the management of the area, ensuring that her hard work, dedication and vision would not be lost to future residents and visitors.

In 1986 the Norfolk Island Botanic Garden was declared a part of the new Norfolk Island National Park.

The garden displays a collection of Norfolk Island’s unique flora and has a strong emphasis on increasing knowledge, appreciation and enjoyment of Australia’s plant heritage.
