Winter School Holidays


Have some wheely good fun at the National Arboretum Canberra these school holidays!

Get outdoors with guided bike rides and bike maintenance workshops on offer! Bikes not your thing? Enjoy a fairy hunt through our 100-year-old Cork Oak Forest or pick up a family orienteering pack to hunt for clues and learn how to use a map. Warm Tree 2019 is also on with knitted installations and drop in knitting sessions.

Warm Trees brightens up the National Arboretum Canberra once again this winter. Come and visit during the month of July to tip toe through the knitted tulips, see a giant cargo bike knitted instillation and discover the sea of colourful scarves wrapped around trees in the Himalayan Cedar forest. This year also features the world’s largest handcrafted frieze of colourful tulips, decorated bicycle wheels and groves of magical colour.
