Purchase your kit here

Back by popular demand! Purchase a self-guided kit online, collect it from the garden, then embark on a treasure hunt at your own pace.

Children and parents work together to follow a map around Adelaide Botanic Garden, and learn about different trees and plants from all over the world.

Along the way, you will unravel clues to solve answers to the Plant Hunter’s question.

While you're here, explore the lush surroundings, bring a picnic or enjoy lunch, ice cream or coffee from the Cafe or Kiosk.

Parents/carers are encouraged to book early – kits will sell out!

Please Note:

Limited kits are available and they are only suitable for this School Holiday period - it is changed each season.
