Our school holiday programs run during every term break for four-five days (depending upon public holidays). All programs are planned around an environmental theme, include interactive and hands-on activities and are focused on teaching kids about the natural environment and sustainability.​

Pirates in the Garden
22-25 January, 10am to 12pm daily

Bring your children to the Garden for an adventure these summer school holidays!

Children are encouraged to come dressed-up as fairies or pirates and join in the fun with a performance by Captain Compost, followed by a Pirate and Fairy Treasure hunt, and then children can make their own magical terrarium to take home.

Activities are suitable for children aged 3 to 12 years.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Cost: $12.50 per child, $23.50 per family of 2 children or more.  Payments made on the day can only be made with debit/credit card (except Amex) only.

Bookings aren't necessary for families and individuals, but vacation care groups need to reserve a spot by contacting the Botanic Garden office on (02) 4227 7667 or emailing
