Become a volunteer
Once you are a member of Foundation & Friends of the Botanic Gardens, there are many volunteer opportunities available.
Events - Talks, workshops, bushwalks, special events, plant and book sales, and tours - are an enjoyable way to discover more about plants and gardens. And they're a great way to meet other garden lovers.
NYE in the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney - the Garden is closed to the public on New Year's Eve but Foundation & Friends' members can purchase tickets for themselves and their guests to a family-friendly picnic in the Garden. The Mare and Foal Lawn on Farm Cove provides a great view of the fireworks. Bring your own picnic, however no sharp knives or glass are allowed to be brought in. Tickets are not available on the night. All bookings must be made by members. This event has now sold out.
