Gondwana Garden Family Day

Dinosaurs on the loose at Blue Mountains Botanic Garden's Gondwana Garden Family Day

Free family science fun is coming to on Saturday 19 August 2017, where National Science Week will be celebrated with dinosaurs, fossils, frogs, fungi and more at the first ever Gondwana Garden Family Day.

For one day only, Garden visitors will be able to take a trip to the ancient land of Gondwana; a land full of creepy creatures, freaky fungi and prehistoric plants.

Gondwana Garden Family Day highlights include:

  • Behind-the-scenes nursery tours
  • Scientists and their moss, fern & Wollemi pine displays
  • Australian Museum & Children’s Discovery Museum stalls
  • Make your own fossil & adventure trail activities
  • A roaming life size Erth dinosaur puppet
  • Frog and Tadpole Society display
  • Pond dipping for algae and slime
  • Reptile and wildlife shows
  • Local food and beverage vendors
  • Jurassic Garden augmented reality app: Megafauna and dinosaurs come to life

Grab a Gondwana Garden passport (Cost: $4 ) and head off on a time-traveling hands-on activity trail! Collect the stamps and make your own souvenirs of the day  – A Dino-footprint fossil, a scientific specimen of an ancient Dino-snack plant and a Dinosaur egg to hatch at home!

Attendance at Gondwana Garden Family Day is free of charge thanks to funding from Inspiring Australia. This event is part of National Science Week and the Sydney Science Festival.
