About Botanical Gardens Portland

In 1850 a zone of roughly 30 sections of land limited by Glenelg Street, Bentinck Street, and Salt Creek has put aside as a save for a professional flowerbed.

A gathering of compelling townsfolk including the Henty Brothers met in 1853 to create enthusiasm for building up the patio nurseries.

On fourth February 1854, an open gathering was held and an advisory group shaped.

An administration concedes of £500 was secured to fence the save and plan the format of the patio nurseries.

The region was fenced yet the arrangement was quite a while away.

In September 1857 the board of trustees kept in touch with Ferdinand von Muller, Curator of the Melbourne Botanic Gardens asking for guidance on laying out of the greenery enclosures.

Alexander Elliott was designated to the undertaking and is accepted to have gone to Portland soon thereafter to stamp out the ways.

By June 1858 Council had named the main keeper, William Allitt, and the patio nurseries opened to people in general in mid-1859. Portland's Botanic Gardens are the second most seasoned in Victoria
