The historical context

Something not many people know about Australia is terrariums played an important part in our national history. The first major use for the terrarium, shortly after its accidental invention in the 1840s by the English botanist Nathan Ward, was for transporting plants between England and Australia.

Prior to this, mature plants could not survive such a long journey without consuming precious drinking water, a concession no sea captain of the time would have been willing to make. Indeed even great naturalists such as Joseph Banks had to be content with drawings and dried leaf pressings.

The terrarium, therefore, is responsible for places such as Campbell Town in Tasmania and Castlemaine in Victoria having such remarkable similarity to Yorkshire and Somerset. Before the terrarium was invented, these places looked just as Australian as any other.

Whereas many icons of our colonial heritage have already faded from memory, today in Australia, terrariums are more popular than ever.
