Melbourne Trust Fund 2017 Annual Appeal

  • The Staff Scholarship Scheme, established in 2007, has been a very exciting element of the Friends’ support for the Gardens and the Herbarium, with over 26 scholarships awarded.

  • Your donation will assist the Friends to increase the support given for large and small projects in the future.

  • Our current project is the refurbishment of the Visitors’ Centre at Observatory Gate.
