This series of free eco-friendly workshops runs daily (Monday - Friday) in the Sensory Garden throughout the summer holidays from 9-10am. Kids can express themselves through arts and crafts, and get up close and personal with the precinct’s resident bees and backyard chooks. Workshops are free, but registration is essential.
