Waratah Membership: Your Patron Program

Waratah Members are special supporters of the Botanic Gardens, who make annual donations alongside their Foundation & Friends membership renewals each year. These donations support the important scientific, horticultural and educational projects of your Botanic Gardens.

For over 200 years your Gardens have been places of world-class science, horticulture, education and enjoyment. Over 50% of the Gardens' funding is self-generated, donations from our Waratah Members are important in ensuring that the vital work of your Gardens can continue.

As part of our Waratah Member community you get a truly unique opportunity to be more involved in the life of your Gardens. To keep you updated, you will receive exclusive invitations to an exciting calendar of special events and enjoy rare access to the people and places that make your Gardens unique.

We do you hope you will join us as a Waratah Member today!
