School holiday program - Tiny Summer

What can you do these school holidays? Bring your little one to Adelaide Botanic Garden this January for our 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:

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