Murder in the Garden

It's a murder mystery like no other: death, deception and theft in none other than the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. 

In a rare opportunity to come within the Garden Gates after hours, you’ll journey along shadowy tree-lined paths, and into buildings old and new to interrogate suspects, inspect evidence and CCTV footage and try your hand at some forensic analysis.

Your challenge: to convict a murderer by the end of the night.

Bring your friends and work together to solve the mystery!

Every ticket includes:

  • After-hours access to botanic gardens heritage buildings
  • Immersive theatre interacting with the suspects, detectives and fellow guests
  • A glass of wine and nibbles including chees platters and antipasto spread on arrival
  • A who-dunnit detective booklet for notetaking
  • Hands-on forensic activities
  • Entry to lucky door prizes
  • Viewing of the Plants with Bite carnivorous plants display at The Calyx
