The Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan is the Australian native plant garden of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney and covers 416 hectares.

The plantings are designed to take visitors on an exploration of Australia's unique plant life with the Connections Garden being the premier Garden within the site. The four and a half hectare Connection Garden is a roofless museum demonstrating the way people and the natural world interconnect.

The Garden is also one of the premier outdoor events venues in South West Sydney and hosts AnnanROMA Food and Wine Festival and the largest Carols event in the region in December.
