Free family science fun is coming to Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah on Saturday, August 19, when National Science Week will be celebrated with dinosaurs, fossils, frogs, fungi and more at the first ever Gondwana Garden Family Day.
For one day only, garden visitors will be able to take a trip to the ancient land of Gondwana; a land full of creepy creatures, freaky fungi and prehistoric plants.
Gondwana Garden Family Day highlights include behind-the-scenes nursery tours, scientists and their moss, fern and Wollemi pine displays, Australian Museum and Children’s Discovery Museum stalls, make your own fossil and adventure trail activities, a roaming life-size Erth dinosaur puppet, Frog and Tadpole Society display, pond dipping for algae and slime, reptile and wildlife shows, local food and beverage vendors, and Jurassic Garden augmented reality app which brings megafauna and dinosaurs to life.
Attendance is free thanks to funding from Inspiring Australia. It is on Saturday, August 19, 11am to 3pm.
