Come and visit us to learn all about what you can see and do at the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden and St Ives Showground.

Our friendly staff can also provide information on our local flora and fauna and help with bookings for events and activities in the St Ives Precinct.

The St Ives Visitor Centre also features a wildflower nursery, a lovely gift shop, artisan’s gallery, information displays and a kids’ corner.

Native flower displays

A real talking point is our display of native flowers in bloom.

The display is maintained weekly across the year by volunteers from the Australian Plants Society, who selectively cut samples of our common wildflowers and display them on a labelled stand to aid in identification. It’s one of the only places in Australia where you can come and see a collection of actual specimens of what’s flowering at any point in time.

The display takes a recess during December and January when the flowers are generally fewer.
