Activity Bookings

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.​

Dodos and Dinosaurs
15-18 April, 10am to 1pm daily

Step back into the land of the ancient dinosaurs this autumn and follow in the footprints of these magnificent giants from the past. You’ll discover what they ate while you come face to face with their favourite plants and you will even meet the Muttaburrasaurus, one of our own Aussie dinosaurs. The Dodo Bird will also make an appearance during the holiday activities as well the famous Wollemi Pine. The Garden’s holiday program is a great way to have lots fun outdoors, while learning remarkable things about our natural environment.

Daily activities include:

  • The ‘No More Dodos’ Garden Show
  • Where’s Wally Treasure Hunt
  • Dino and Dodo Crafts

Activities are suitable for children aged 3 to 10 years. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
