From Friday 7 May to Sunday 16 May, the botanic gardens will be transformed into a wonderland for both children and adults alike. While the full program has not yet been revealed, expect to see artist workshops, sonic tours, spoken-word activities and a poetry-slam night as well as live-drawing events.

There will also be a children’s discovery trail where kids can play hide-and-seek with micro-projections of Australian fauna. On all three nights of both weekends of Botanica — Contemporary Art Outside, DJs, food trucks and a pop-up bar will enhance the atmosphere.
