Olive Pink Botanic Garden is a botanic garden in Alice Springsmarker in Australia's Northern Territorymarker, specialising in plants native to the arid central Australian region.

History

Following strong lobbying by anthropologist Olive Pink, what is now the Garden was founded on derelict crown land by being gazetted in 1956 as the Australian Arid Regions Flora Reserve. For the next two decades the main people involved in establishing the area as a botanic garden were Olive Pink (Honorary Curator) and her Warlpiri assistant gardeners. After Pink's death in 1975 the Northern Territory Government assumed management control over the reserve, which was opened to the public, as the Olive Pink Flora Reserve, in 1985. In 1996 it was renamed the Olive Pink Botanic Garden.

In 1995 it was listed on the Register of the National Estate.
