The Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden has a Research Area of approximately 30 hectares. This site is on the western side of the Stuart Highway, separated from the main body of the AALBG by the highway. The Research Area includes open chenopod plain and Western Myall woodland. The site is available for research groups to conduct appropriate plant trials and research. Water is available. The site is well fenced, accessible to the Stuart Highway and is not open to the public.
