Designed across five acres of gently undulating land and accessed by a winding, wheelchair friendly, path Inala’s Jurassic Garden gives visitors an insight into the heady times when Australia was part of the supercontinent Gondwana.

Despite splitting apart 185 million years ago, much of the flora of Gondwana survives today. The Jurassic Garden shows how some species deviated as the continents drifted apart and how some species have remained relatively unchanged for literally millions of years.

Over four hundred species, thoughtfully planted in family groups, make it easy to compare and contrast how these living remnants have survived across a diverse array of environmental conditions.

There are strong connections between the Nature Museum and Jurassic Garden, with many of the ancient fossils on display also featuring as living versions just outside in the Garden.
