Development of the walk was a collaboration between the Friends of the Gardens and Gardens' staff. The project funding was provided by the Bjarne K Dahl Trust, an organisation committed to advancing the conservation of and education about eucalypts, and the Public Fund of the Friends of the Gardens.

The Eucalypt Discovery Walk was launched in 2013 in conjunction with Fascination of Plants Day held on 18 May each year.
