Bundaberg Botanic Gardens is a great place to visit and now there is even more to do with the launch of two school holiday fun activities for children.

Bundaberg Regional Council portfolio spokesperson, Cr Wayne Honor, said the COVID-friendly gardens school holiday activities, ‘Garden Kids’ and ‘I Spy’, would provide hours of fun for younger visitors to the park, encouraging children to enjoy the great outdoors in a family-friendly location.

“Garden Kids is an activity sheet focusing on what can be seen flowering and fruiting and what animals are present in the gardens,” Cr Honor said.

“I Spy requires children to move throughout the gardens in search for 28 items, including animals, plants and objects, that are contained on their list.

“These new activities complement already existing ones including activity trails and garden bingo.”

Cr Honor said the Botanic Gardens also had plenty to offer for parents accompanying their children for the activities.

“The Bundaberg Botanic Gardens cover 27 hectares of land and feature more than 10,000 trees and shrubs,” he said.

“There is no shortage of attractions nestled within the gardens, including the Hinkler Hall of Aviation, Fairymead House Sugar Museum, Bundaberg and District Historical Museum, Café 1928 and the Australian Sugar Cane Railway.

“Our gardens are very popular with tourists, but I encourage Bundaberg Region residents to make the most of having this fantastic facility at their doorstep.”

The gardens school holiday activity sheets ‘Garden Kids’ and ‘I Spy’ are free and available in hard copy at Café 1928, the Hinkler Hall of Aviation and Bundaberg and District Historical Museum or can be accessed via the Discover Bundaberg website.
