$50 million revamp for loved gardens

$50 million revamp for loved gardens: "The pyramid glasshouse at the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens will be knocked down and replaced by a new $50 million "Biome" structure, the state government will announce on Monday.

The towering new building will replace the existing Tropical Centre and will replicate three distinct climatic regions and their plants and animals.

Environment Minister Robyn Parker said the structure, which will be completed in 2015, is expected to attract 70, 000 visitors to the park every year."
