What happens if it is bad weather?
Our Gardens love the rain, so we believe there’s no such thing as ‘bad weather’.
Our programs go ahead in all-weather, so we recommend that both children and staff come prepared for the weather forecast. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more information around weather and cancellations or date rescheduling.
RBGDT will cancel a program if – storms, lightning, high winds and poor air quality would endanger participants or if any warnings or orders to stay indoors are issued by Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), NSW Health or another public authority AND an excursion cannot be modified to run completely indoors.
RBGDT will modify a program if – this can be done without the program itinerary being significantly affected, and the visiting group agrees. Decisions are based on BOM advice or health warnings to ‘at risk’ people e.g. those with Asthma.

We do not accept cancellations for wet weather, unless it is an extreme weather condition. Cancellations outside of the Extreme Weather Guidelines will incur a cancellation fee of the minimum charge per hired educator. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more information, including our Extreme Weather Guidelines.

For avoidance of doubt, the participating group may not cancel or modify the event without RBGDT’s approval.
