Arid Explorer Children’s Garden

Two children play in the shady red sand pit

What could be better... getting your hands dirty, using your imagination & having lots of fun?

Come and explore our Arid Explorers Garden

The garden is located next to the visitor centre and took a year to complete from the first design stage and wouldn't have been possible without the suppport of our wonderful volunteers, the Friends of the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden.

It offers a fenced nature play area featuring a shelter shed, mini bird hide, logs and rocks for climbing & building, a dry creekbed and a “red sand” sand pit, and more... Let your imagination run wild.

It's not just the kids having fun though, parents can enjoy a quiet coffee while they watch their kids explore and have fun – it doesn't get much better than that!
