Olive Pink Botanic Garden - Cities, Towns and Localities
The Olive Pink Botanic Garden is an Arid Zone Botanic Garden in the Northern Territory, named after Miss Olive Pink.

Olive Pink arrived in Central Australia in 1930, and lived with the Aboriginal people in the Tanami Desert. She studied the Arrernte and Walpiri people and was a great advocate of Aboriginal rights. Later she lived in Alice Springs and worked for the creation of this arid zone botanic garden.

A stroll through the garden will reveal the depth and breadth of plants endemic to the region. You may even get to see some of the local wildlife that frequent the garden.
