The Great Garden Egg Hunt

The Easter Bunny is coming to the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney on Saturday and Sunday of the Easter long weekend! Children use a trail map to complete fun challenges, collect chocolate eggs and hunt for their furry Easter friend.

Following the trail, children will move around the beautiful gardens between five activities which are egg or bunny related. There will also be a family photo opportunity at the end with the Easter Bunny so bring your camera!
Come and join in the festivities and enjoy some good old-fashioned fun!

Please note, The Royal Botanic Garden cannot hide chocolate eggs in the Garden for hygiene and safety reasons. Instead children will be handed chocolate eggs on completion of each activity . Children will receive chocolate treats along the trail.
