We are pleased that we are now able welcome back school groups to the botanic gardens.

The safety and well-being of our visitors, volunteers and staff remains our highest priority and, in preparation to welcoming back school groups, we are implementing new COVID-19 compliant protocols to offer a safe and fun experience for all groups that attend our programs.

Measures include:

  • Group sizes of approximately 20 to ensure physical distancing can be adhered to while not impacting on the quality of the learning experience
  • Practicing of good hygiene before, during and after sessions
  • Adults must continue to maintain physical distance (1.5m) and density (2sqm) requirements
  • Attending teachers and supervisors will be required to play an active role in managing these measures
  • Students, teachers and supervisors must not attend if they are unwell
