Heya.

Little Day Out is a curated list of fun things to do for kids in Sydney. We save you time by selecting just six weekend activities we think are the best of what's on

The Royal Botanic Garden - Spring Walk in the Garden, 7am - 6pm, Free

The Royal Botanic Garden - Spring Walk in the Garden, 7am - 6pm, Free

Wander through the Royal Botanic Garden to see the seasonal flowers on display along our famous spring walk. First planted in 1855, it is the oldest continuous horticultural display in the country.

The horticultural staff have carefully selected plants to evoke an English spring garden in an Australian climate.

This year, the spring planting is a cottage mixture and will be in bloom from mid-August providing a spectacular spring display. Keep an eye out for stock in the early part of the season for their lovely scent and ranunculus in the latter part of the season for their bright colours.

The Spring Walk roundabout will be a mass of red flanders poppies.

See different seasonal flowers and plants at their best. Also view stunning blooms on the wonderful varieties of wisteria, flowering peach, plum, cherry and magnolia lining the Spring Walk and brightening Lion Gate Lodge.

Also spectacular in spring is the flowering meadow near the Garden Shop. It will be a sea of magnificent blue from the lakspur nestled amongst the marigolds.
