One of Sydney's best kept secrets, the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden was established in 1968 with the aim of 'the growing of plants from all parts of Australia for preservation and public display, and by these means the attraction of tourists and visitors to the Ku-ring-gai Municipality'.

The 123 hectares of gardens lies in an area of Sydney sandstone bushland adjacent to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and is home to two endangered ecological communities; Duffys Forest and Coastal Upland Swamp as well as 18 threatened species of flora and fauna.

The Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden is a great spot for learning, bushwalking, picnics and special events.
