School Holiday Program



Adelaide Botanic Garden hosts a stacked School Holiday Program each and every term – but you need to book early, places fill up fast! Suitable for children aged 5-12, all activities have been designed to promote fun, hands-on learning about plants, people and the environment.

Past activities have included spinning up smoothies and soups using pedal power and fresh produce from our Little Sprouts Kitchen Garden; listening to Aboriginal Dreaming stories and identifying tracks in the environment; and making dreamcatchers, wind chimes and critters using botanical bits from around the Garden.

Most activities require a booking and prices vary from free to $20.

Stay tuned to this page where upcoming programs will be updated 4-6 weeks prior to commencement, and sign up to the Gardens’ e-newsletter to get School Holiday news delivered straight to your inbox.
