Abstract

The Domain and Royal Botanic Gardens are some of the most important open spaces in Australia's urban landscape. The 29 hectares of gardens are surrounded by 51 hectares of parkland including the Sydney Domain. They were officially recognised as a botanic garden in 1816, while only becoming 'Royal' in 1959. The site is one of the world's oldest colonial botanic gardens and one of the most important botanical gardens in the Southern Hemisphere (only Rio de Janeiro is older).
