Prominent botanist Peter Latz described the Olive Pink Botanical Gardens as a “globally unique treasure”.

It has the world’s biggest collection of Central Australian species, 600 of them, including 33 that are rare or endangered.

Mr Latz spoke at the 30th anniversary of the gardens last Thursday at which curator Ian Coleman announced ambitions plans.
