Family Program

For children 5+ years, accompanied by parents/carers.

Royal Botanic Garden Aboriginal Educators and Kaldor Public Art Projects Educators lead families on a fascinating tour through time, peeking into the history of Gadigal life by the Harbour and the almost-forgotten dramatic history of the colonial Garden Palace. Participants will grind native grass seeds, bake bread using native ingredients and experience contemporary Aboriginal art in Jonathan Jones' installation barrangal dyara (skin and bones).
