From the Brisbane City Council Website

In the Arid Zone and Cactus House the dry regions of Central America and Africa are represented by plants that adapt to their harsh environments. Stem-succulent Euphorbia and Jatropha contrast with juicy-leaved Aloe, Kalanchoe, Lampranthus and similar forms. Together they combine to simulate the rugged beauty of life in a desert landscape.

At the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha, the Tropical Display Dome is a large lattice structure (geodesic) displaying plants from the tropics. A pathway winds upwards through the dome building, wrapping around a central pond with water plants. This path leads visitors past a range of shrubs, climbers, epiphytes and small trees. The dome provides a climate close to the natural growing conditions for plants that wouldn’t normally grow in Brisbane.
