Sydney gets spooky this Halloween

Vampires, witches and zombies – oh my! Halloween is looming and Sydney is gearing up for lollies and frightfully fun activities to celebrate. From the inner city to south west Sydney, the Gardens have the top Halloween events for kids and families.

Garden Monsters

This year the Garden Monsters trail curves through some wild and spooky locations at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney

Kids can take part in the Garden Monsters trail by following the map to visit five tricky stations. From Rosemary Thistlebottom's curious concoctions (Tail of lizard, possum gizzards?) to the spider's snare and the deady dash, petryfying plants and frighting forests await. With a scientific twist to the activities, those who keep their wits about them will survive!

Children that complete the Garden Monster map and safely survive Halloween 2019 will be rewarded with a treat.

The trail finishes back at The Calyx where the whole family can enjoy the fabulous Plants with Bite!  display where you can learn about the tricks of incredible carnivorous plants.

Secure your place on Sunday 27 October 2019 and get your spooky kooky costume ready to go.

Halloween PlantBank Party

On Sunday 27 October the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan is out to prove that science can be stranger and spookier than fiction, at the totally free Halloween PlantBankParty for south-west Sydney.

Kids will have the chance to become a scientist for the day and discover the amazing superpowers of nature on a tricky activity trail.
Our real-life scientists will have fantastic activity stations to learn about crazy plants, rainforest fruit and seed conservation, and even visit the rainforest or the woodlands.
For those fans of creepy crawlies, frogs and tadpoles and even colourful peacock spiders will be on display. 

The day is free but register here to secure your spot including a trick-or-treat bag and your very own pumpkin to plant.
With prizes for best dressed be sure to wear your spookiest outfit and don’t forget to pack your wits!
