The Olive Pink
Botanic Garden is an Arid Zone Botanic Garden in the Northern Territory, named
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.
