It's big! It's tiny! It's near! It's far!

Adventure through tiny and big and see things near and far as we pull out microscopes, magnifying glasses and binoculars on a journey from the tiniest to some of the largest members of our botanical collections!

Starting with the Tiny Oz diorama, we will see some amazing seeds under the microscope, before a walk-through Adelaide Botanic Garden with one of our botanical educators.

You'll learn about flowers (including the giant Corpse Flower!) and see the Grey-Headed Flying Fox colony as well as help to spot some of our favourite pollinators in the garden.
