Adelaide Botanic Garden | Tiny Summer School Holiday Program

Adelaide Botanic Garden Tiny Summer Program.

Take your little one to Adelaide Botanic Garden this January for a fun-filled Tiny Summer program.

Embrace all things small through a range of activities, from a musical adventure to creating your own mini magical garden… and more!

Start your visit by marvelling at a fun-sized model of Adelaide Botanic Garden, which has been shrunk down to teensy trees and a petite Palm House.  The model depicts a scene from 1871 when a pioneering hot air balloon flight set to the skies and a pair of brave trapeze artists performed daredevil tricks to cheering crowds.

Play I-spy as you spot quirky additions such as a bear and kangaroos, and press a button to make the hot air balloon move up and down. Read more about this cool, free-to-view model here.

Then entertain your kids with these fun activities:

  • Budding green thumbs can create magical gardens or tiny terrariums.
  • Join the hilarious Charlie D on a musical adventure through the Garden.
  • Get crafty and make cute botanical critters.
  • Enjoy yoga amongst the trees with your smallest family members.
  • Get your science on at a fascinating insect investigation.
  • Discover art that’s so small, it’s invisible…until you use a free app on your device to reveal it! Read our Seeing the Invisible Review.
  • Embark on tiny-themed guided tours to explore the Garden and Aboriginal culture.

While you’re in the Garden, take a picnic or head to the café or kiosk, where there’s a kids menu, plenty of ice cream and great coffee.

Find the Tiny Summer Program at the State Herbarium in the Adelaide Botanic Garden (D16 on the map). Enter via the Goodman Gate off Hackney Road.
