Children's University Australia - Strange Plants

Children's University Australia - Strange Plants

Strange Plants is a Children's University Australia Trail for ages 10-14 at Adelaide Botanic Garden.

Click here to download the Student Guide.

Children's University Australia is managed by the University of Adelaide and offers educational experiences for children aged between 7 and 14 years, recognising their achievements through the award of formal certificates and graduations.

Children can validate their trail by contacting their school's Children's University coordinator for a stamp in their passport, rather than the usual way of obtaining a stamp from the Visitor Information Centre, which is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

* Please note that Station 6: Ferns in the Simpson Shade House is temporarily unavailable as the building is undergoing repairs. We will advise once this area becomes available again. Thank you for your understanding.
