Burringbar Botanic Gardens is situated in the subtropical climate of far north-eastern NSW. The gardens were created by local enthusiast Kristopher Kupsch, an avid horticulturalist and botanist, whom as a teenager, began revegetating sections of the family property which at the time was primarily used for grazing. Early plantings specifically included rare and threatened species, and the gardens are expanding to include a diverse array of collections such as Cycas, Macrozamia, Encephalartos, Pandanus, Succulents, Bromeliads, Gingers and Palms. The climate allows for a wide range of species, especially those generally considered to demand tropical conditions. The gardens have over 5 acres of plantings and contain over 1500 species of Australian plants and about 100 exotic species.
As a boy Kris developed a passion for horticulture and began selling plants at the local markets (pictured here at Burringbar, age 7).
We are a local family operated business that offers a promising variety of Australian tropical and subtropical species, specifically catering for botanical collections but also for landscaping and bushfood plantings. We also sell a variety of ornamental plants suitable for plant enthusiasts.
Nursery hygiene is of the up-most importance and we constantly strive to improve our hygiene practices by using soil-less media sourced locally from an expert business, using above ground shelved growing facilities. We aim to be approved by the Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme Australia (NIASA), and therefore all capital works and expansions are carried out in accordance to the NIASA guidelines.
