The Calyx


The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney has grown a new world-class attraction, The Calyx, which opened in June 2016.

The venue was built around the site of the Arc Glasshouse, in the south western corner of the garden. Intelligent, sensitive architecture has replaced the Tropical Centre pyramid and foyer.

The Calyx is an integrated mix of indoor and outdoor areas, with the exhibitions changing on a regular basis, reinventing itself through emotively themed exhibitions. The first exhibition at the Calyx, Sweet Addiction, which fuses art, theatre, and flora to narrate the botanic story of chocolate is now closed. We are now working on the next display and look forward to welcoming you to All About Flowers, launching in May.
