New Location!

We’re excited to let you know that as of 18 January 2018 we will be running the program in a new location! We’ll be meeting each Thursday morning on a shady Lawn just inside the Woolloomooloo Gate.

The new location is:
• handy for the 441 bus-stop just 50metres away on Woolloomooloo Gate
• closer to train stations – St James and Martin Place
• near the Yellowwood Garden for lots of planting, tending and harvesting activities
• adjacent to the toilets located at Rathborne Lodge

When: Every Thursday, 10.30 am - 12.00 noon (excluding public holidays)
Meeting Point: Rathborne Lodge Lawns. Enter via Woolloomooloo Gate on Mrs Macquaries Road. See map below.
Who: Children up to 5 years and their parents or carers. Younger children may need more assistance from carers with activities. Accompanying adults and babies with a paying sibling are welcome for free.
Public transport: Take bus route 441 towards the Art Gallery NSW from the Queen Victoria Building (the first bus of the morning leaves from QVB at 10.08 am and arrives at Dandy Lions at 10.15 am). The closest train station with pram access is Circular Quay.
Parking: Metered parking is available along Mrs Macquaries Road
Further information: Wear clothing suitable for outdoor play and craft. For other enquiries please email programs.info@bgcp.nsw.gov.au
Please note: Parents are expected to attend and participate in the session and are responsible for their children's whereabouts and safety. We do not go ahead if there are thunderstorms or high winds, or if the temperature is above 35 degrees Celsius. If the program is cancelled and you have booked a ticket you will be notified via email.
