Australia’s Virtual Herbarium

AVH provides access to information obtained from the collections held in Australian herbaria.

Australia’s major state and territory herbaria house over six million plant, algae and fungi specimens. The collecting data stored with these specimens provides the most complete picture of the distribution of Australia’s flora to date. AVH is an initiative of the Council of Heads of Australasian Herbaria (CHAH).
