2. Celebrate, create and connect at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney
The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney offers unique opportunities for local and visiting families to learn more about Sydney’s Aboriginal heritage here in the heart of the city.
Celebrate, Create, Corroboree:
Encourage your children to get hands on, creative, and connect with natural materials at Celebrate, Create, Corroboree at the Sydney Garden.
A morning incorporating the mind, body, and soul, kids will create their very own headpiece or arm band to wear while learning about the purpose and movements of traditional and contemporary Aboriginal dance. They will finish the day with their own Corroboree in our beautiful Garden!
If you’d like to learn more about Sydney’s Aboriginal culture and history as a family, why not all come along to the Garden’s regular Aboriginal Heritage Tour. An engaging and interactive experience, you will learn about plant uses, culture, artefacts and even try seasonal bush tucker.

Because we love outdoor play AND gardens, the Ian Potter Children’s WILD PLAY Garden located in the newly heritage listed, Centennial Park, is one of our favourite spots to visit. This award-winning outdoor play space encourages kids of all ages and abilities to discover the wild side of life.
Families can visit and explore Garden with its bamboo forest, dry creek beds, water play area, and tree house from 10.00 am – 5.00 pm daily these spring holidays (check the Centennial Park website for more information). Plus, there’s a coffee van and amenities block close at hand so you can play to your heart’s content.
This October, WILD PLAY Kids vs Wild - Tracks, Trails and Treasure Hunts has caught our eye.
