Friends of the Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens Inc.
Enjoy the beauty of the Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens while helping to rejuvenate the important Myrtaceae Garden. Species to be planted include eucalypts, bottle brushes callistemon, melaleucas and leptospermums. The Myrtaceae family of plants was very important to Aboriginal people. Water was collected from the roots of certain mallee eucalypts. The wood and bark of eucalypts and melaleucas were used to make tools and utensils. Edible grubs and insects were also provided by some eucalypts.
