Event Details

Looking for something to do with the family this summer? Visit us on one of our special Family Days!
 

You are invited to bring your family to the Garden every Sunday during July and August and join us for some very special events, workshops and lots of entertainment!

From music to family yoga, making a movie or a science workshop the Garden is partnering with amazing organisations to make sure Sunday is definitely a Funday!

The admission ticket includes one parent and one child, and it will grant you a spot in the workshop!

 

All Family Day activities will take place in one of our spaces, following health and safety protocols and making sure you are safe and comfortable. Once the activity comes to an end, we invite you to explore the Garden before it opens to the public at 11am.

 

We have a limited capacity of 10 children per class.

 

Wait list will open once tickets are sold out.


About our confirmed events:

Budding Biologists (Age 5 -8)

Our Garden is full of living things, but how are living things adapted for survival? Through hands-on activities, students will learn about the form and function of insects and birds. Try eating like a bird and build an imaginary insect!
