Ages: all ages

Venue type: Indoor and Outdoor

Experience the sights, sounds and smells of the jungle as you walk through the oceanic islands, Malaysia, West Africa and tropical South America in the largest greenhouse in the world: the Humid Tropics Biome.

Then walk through the Warm Temperate Biome showcasing the Mediterranean, South Africa and California. Learn about the plants that you see day to day as well as the weird and the wacky.

The Core, Eden's Education Centre, is home to the Seed, a sculpture made from a single piece of granite that weighs as much as ten elephants. The Core is also the place to see exhibitions that show the importance of the world of plants as well as different films, talk and children's workshops.

There are various play areas around the site including mazes made of willow, large instruments to play, a wooden ship to climb, a sand pit and a gigantic nutcracker to wind. You can walk down the winding paths or you can ride on the land train tractor.

There are also a variety of exciting activities on offer, with ice skating through the winter, and exhilarating 66m sky wire ride over the Biomes and a rock climbing wall, as well as events throughout the year to celebrate the seasons.

Be sure to use the link provided here to plan your day! There's a lot to fit in and the average family visit is just over 4 hours! During school holidays Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday tend to be the busiest days but there's room for everyone!
