Children and Families
Visiting the Geelong Botanic Gardens with children? There is more to do here than to admire the roses and eat an ice cream.
Self guided trails for Children and Families
This picture trail can be down-loaded, to guide you through the Gardens
The Last Dragon is a picture trail of 11 images. Counting the objects shown in each picture will give you the numbers 1 to 10, but one image is missing. Turn over to find out why we have a Dragon's Blood Tree, but no dragon.
