Garden Grubs


Garden Grubs

Kids have lots of creative and active fun in the Garden with our professional, enthusiastic educators! 

This all-day school holiday program is full of fun and adventures in the Garden. Kids spend the day exploring the garden and connecting with nature! We have a different theme each day - come for one or all!

Thursday 3rd October 2019- SPRING HAS SPRUNG

There is something magical about Spring! Let’s get creative with colour – we’ll make a gorgeous spring-inspired mandala, a dream catcher using loose plant parts and play in the fairy meadow as we look for pollinators! Plus, we’ll make iced lemon myrtle tea and plant in our Cryptogam house along with lots of other fun outdoor activities.


Friday 4th October 2019- AUSTRALIAN ANIMALS

Today will be spent exploring the garden looking for animals and going on the Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail. We’ll meet an Aboriginal Education officer and learn about animal tracks and dreaming stories. Plus we’ll design and print a calico bag inspired by the Koala Sculptures throughout the Garden, make clay sculptures and do animal yoga. It’s going to be a fun day!


Tuesday 8th October 2019- BUGS & BEASTIES

It’s our all-time favourite program and its back again! We’ll look for bugs and beasties as we explore the garden by dip netting in the pond, hunting for minibeasts in the Education Garden and meet a garden expert. We’ll also get messy creating with clay, plant seeds in the Cryptogam house, play outdoor games and so much more!

"Abi and Samuel had the most wonderful time at Garden Grubs! So much so that they ended up going for 3 days in a row! They loved exploring the gardens and making art.  The staff who ran each day we're all amazing!
