Book Week

Dreaming with eyes open... 20 – 26 August 2022

Picnic in the Gardens

Dress up as your favourite book character and join us for a picnic in the Botanic Gardens, Story Time under the trees and Baby Bounce on the lawn.

Take the time to check out the Strolling Story, where the pages of the local picture book “Birds Don’t Have Birthdays” appear on picture panels along a pathway in the Gardens, allowing children and their families to read the book on their walk.

There will be lots of fun for the kids with face painting, puppets, craft activities plus heaps more!

Bring a picnic rug, water bottle and hat.

Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens
Thursday, August 25, from 9.30am to 11.30am
