Backpacks and Trails

To help you get the most out of your family visit to the Botanic Garden we offer themed trails aimed at children. The trails change several times per year and give different routes around the Garden and activities for children to enjoy along the way. Recent trails have helped families discover the incredible lives of Victorian plant hunters, plant families and the trees of the Botanic Garden. Please check this page or ask at the ticket office when you arrive to see what’s on offer.

We also offer explorer backpacks which are free for you to borrow during your visit. They include things to help children discover the Garden’s plants and wildlife such as magnifying glasses and binoculars. There will be something new to see on every visit!

Happy exploring!
