Pick up a Plant Explorers Passport and take yourself on a quest around the Botanic Garden with challenge stops by Macquarie University science students as well as Botanic Garden scientists and other science experts.

- Learn about the first flower and make your own flower out of recycled materials to “plant” at the festival
- View a selection of plants demonstrating plant development across millions of years
- Learn about the amazing “mint family” of plants. You may have heard of chocolate mint or Vietnamese mint, but did you know there are many species of Australian native mint?
- Get fun with fungi visiting scientists at the Botanic Gardens Plant Clinic
- Learn about furry and scaly Australian animals as you meet them face to face
- Plus, much more!
