Wollemi Pine LawnView venue slideshow

Thought to be extinct for millions of years, the Wollemi Pine (Wollemia nobilis) was discovered growing in a deep, dark hidden valley in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales in 1994. This rare specimen gives the area its name and is fenced for protection.

Tucked away from the more crowded areas, this shaded venue overlooks the Arthur Fairall Playground. The open grassed area beckons visitors to walk up the Broadwalk Vista towards the Western Australian Botanic Garden and climb the DNA tower en route.
