Kids Botanic Art Exhibition.

20th Jan 2016 - 28th Feb 2016

Opening event: January 20th 2016 at 2.00pm

Over 35 children aged 5 – 12 have been busy creating during the January School Holidays activities at the Botanic Gardens.

Their fabulous creations include Botanic Art inspired drawings and paintings plus three dimensional colourful blooms made from recycled materials. The paintings have been framed and will be on display on the Lagoons Gallery and Café walls and the colourful blooms will be in the Gallery showcases and also displaying their colours in the Tropical Shade Garde of the Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens

The recycled material Blooms have botanic inspired names as they are definitely new species and obviously very rare. Come and see what young children observed in the plant world and how these observations inspired their creativity.

Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens Lagoons Gallery is open Wednesday to Friday 10 am - 3pm and Weekends from 9am - 4pm.

Cost: Free
