The Joseph Banks Native Plants Reserve is one of only a few specialised gardens in Sydney devoted entirely to Australian native plants. The Reserve was established in 1969 as a tribute to Sir Joseph Banks, who was the official botanist aboard Lieutenant James Cook's Endeavour which came to Botany Bay in 1770. His name is perpetuated in Australian plants such as the Banksia and Grevillea banksii.
