Botanic Gardens, Anderson Building

The Anderson Building is located in the Royal Botanic Gardens. It opened in 1901 and was known as Maiden's Herbarium until the opening of the Robert Brown Building in 1982. It is now used for administration and contains the Maiden Theatre, in memory of a previous Botanic Garden's Director, Joseph Henry Maiden. The fountain is located outside the Woolloomooloo Gate along Mrs Macquaries Road.

  5. This view highlights the interesting mix of plants in the gardens - palms and more English plants.
