Booking cancellation policy

The Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain trust requires at least eight (8) working daysí notice prior to the excursion session for cancellations.

Excursion cancellation (general)

The cancellation of a booking (unrelated to inclement weather) within 8 working days of the excursion date will incur a cancellation fee of $220. Please note that it is often difficult to find another session due to our heavily booked calendar. To cancel your booking please email school.excursions@rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au

Excursion cancellation (wet weather)

Our excursions go ahead in all but extreme weather. We have access to undercover areas, but our focus is on students experiencing the Garden and visiting classes are expected to come prepared for the weather.

Cancellation of an excursion due to weather must occur by 12 noon on the day prior to the excursion date. If this requirement is not met, a cancellation fee of $220 per class booked applies. To cancel an excursion in office hours or outside of office hours please email school.excursions@rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au

Excursion cancellation (extreme weather)

In the event of extreme weather, where the Bureau of Meteorology has a warning issued on their website www.bom.gov.au for the time of your booked visit, we will accept cancellation with no charge. Please phone the Education Centre on 9231 8134.

Fees are reviewed annually and apply to calendar years.
