Australian National Botanic Gardens

First Friday of every month, except January — Crosbie Morrison Lawn 

Stories, songs, rhymes and creative activities are brought to life in the Gardens’ beautiful natural surroundings.

Join us on the first Friday of every month for family fun with stories about Australian plants and animals. Each themed session is packed with stories, songs and crafts - perfect for pre-schoolers.

Bring a picnic rug and make your way to the Crosbie Morrison Lawn from the carpark (follow the signs).

Storytime will be moved indoors on rainy days and winter months so keep your eye out for those directional signs. 

Please note: All children must have at least one accompanying adult and be supervised at all times.
