Introducing Sydney’s newest attraction at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney – The Calyx.
See another side of nature and experience its stories in an unexpected way when The Calyx opens at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney on 11 June 2016, to form the centrepiece of the Garden’s 200th birthday.
The Calyx (pron. kal-iks, def. ‘The outermost whorl of flowers’) is a world-class horticultural space that will showcase ever-changing exhibitions, launching with Sweet Addiction – the botanic story of chocolate.
Sweet Addiction is an opportunity to touch, see, smell, taste and experience chocolate like never before. The story begins in the depths of a tropical rainforest, and takes visitors on a journey through chocolate plantations, ancient history and a Lindt mill, culminating in the delightful chocolatier room. Major sponsor Lindt, will host chocolate demonstrations in the chocolatier room during The Calyx opening weekend and peak Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter seasons.
Sweet Addiction features the southern hemisphere’s largest contiguous green wall, with over 18,000 plants arranged into living artworks representing the Mayan God of Chocolate, a traditional chocolate box, and more.
