Kingsbrae Garden welcomes on of the world oldest and rarest trees, Wollemia nobilis; the only one in Canada. An epic journey for a historic little tree, across 90 million years and 10,000 miles. from Wollemi National Park Blue Mountains of Australia - "down under" - to the great white north.


The wollemis have outlived their prehistoric cousins, aunts and uncles for millions of years. Since dinosaurs roared about the Earth to the present electronic era, a few wollemi pines have patiently survived with their gene pool pure and unchanged, in the Blue Mountains of Australia. What was likely a tasty treat that Cretaceous dinosaurs munched for lunch is now the botanical story of the century!


Conservation: Kingsbrae Garden is pleased to be part of the worldwide conservation effort of the wollemi pine.
