TOWER AT THE SYSTEM GARDEN

The System Garden was the creation of Frederick McCoy, the first professor of Natural Science at the University of Melbourne. Begun in 1856, it originally comprised a series of concentric garden beds, organised according to plant classification. The only remnant from that time is the tower which formed the centre of an octagonal glasshouse.
