The Wollongong Botanic Garden is located in the Wollongong suburb of Keiraville at the foot of Mount Keira in New South Wales, Australia. It is the local botanical gardens of the Illawarra and was established in 1964. It was opened in September 1970.
The garden is co-located with the historic Gleniffer Brae house, used for functions and the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music. A number of annexes are managed by the garden - Puckeys Estate Reserve in Fairy Meadow, the Korrongulla Wetlands in Primbee and the Mount Keira Summit Park.
The garden features various themed areas, including a rose garden, herb garden, woodland garden, azalea bank, succulent plants and several rainforest areas divided into Illawarra rainforest, subtropical rainforest, dry rainforest and exotic rainforest.
A creek runs through the garden and into a small lake. This creek joins Para Creek and runs into Puckeys Estate Reserve. The azalea garden and succulent garden are both local attractions, and many tourists are seen taking pictures of the flowers. Local university students study plants here.
