ADVERTISING FEATURE: A packed April at the Hunter Region Botanic Gardens

There is something for everyone at the Hunter Region Botanic Gardens this month.

THERE is so much going on at the Hunter Region Botanic Gardens this April – something for everyone!

A walk in the Gardens will show you how the seasons are changing, with all the colours of autumn on show, contrasting with our collection of Australian native evergreens.

“The autumn planting Native Plant Sale is on 7 April and our final grafting workshop until spring is on April 13,” said the Botanic Gardens team.

“Our natives always put on a show so why not join our native plant expert, Carolyn Gillard, for a walking tour on April 15?”

There are several workshops for kids on offer too; a spotlight walk, kite-making, kid’s art workshop and making beads from branches, as well as a Treasure Trove Trail daily.

The month’s major event is the Teddy Bear’s Picnic on Tuesday, 16 April from 10am until 2pm.

There is a special teddy bear parade this year with the Marching Koalas Band!
