Ask RiotACT: Looking for banksia

By nicamc - 17 August 2016 3


Hi, I am a teacher in the ACT and am putting together a small display on May Gibbs. I am looking for a couple of banksia flowers to make banksia men. Does anyone know where I might be able to find some locally?

Thanking you in anticipation.

What’s Your opinion?

I’d give the Australian National Botanic Gardens a call – 6250 9588 (mention you are a school teacher). They may have some cuttings they could give you – or may be able to suggest other places to visit or call.

If you don’t have any luck elsewhere, feel free to drop me a line on We have a large banksia in the backyard. No fresh flowers currently, but have some that are starting to dry, and some older ones.
