Blooming Beautiful! Wistaria Gardens Parramatta Park

Wistaria Gardens, in Parramatta Park, blooms every spring with wisteria, flowering peach trees and a spectacular display of seasonal flowers.

Wistaria Gardens Parramatta Park

One of only three surviving large-scale Edwardian/Federation Gardens in Sydney, Wistaria Gardens was formerly part of the Cumberland Hospital site, along with heritage listed Glengarriff House. The two-hectare gardens and house were originally built as the residence for the Medical Superintendent of the Parramatta Lunatic Asylum in 1906.

Wistaria Gardens Parramatta Park

The historic Wistaria Gardens and Glengarriff House have recently become part of UNESCO-listed Parramatta Park after the NSW Parliament passed legislation to recognise the Greater Sydney Parklands Trust (GSPT).

Wistaria Gardens Parramatta Park

Now a public space where visitors are welcome, Wistaria Gardens is a stunning place to visit each spring with its spectacular display of Chinese wisteria, Japanese wisteria, flowering peach, almond trees, palm trees, tree gardenia and English elms.

Wistaria Gardens Parramatta Park

Parramatta Park was established in 1857 and is one of 11 sites that form the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage Property inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Wistaria Gardens Parramatta Park

Wistaria Gardens is located at the northern end of Parramatta Park. Entry is via Byrnes Avenue, near The Picnic Ground inside Parramatta Park. Limited parking is available nearby within the park.

Wistaria Gardens Parramatta Park

Dogs are welcome in the park (please keep your dog on a leash and clean up after it!). There are very few amenities located in the park. A few plastic chairs are scattered around however we suggest bringing a picnic blanket and some food and lounging for a while to enjoy the sweet-smelling blooms.

Throw paint, get messy and create your own masterpiece at Kaboo Studio, an art experience for all ages and abilities.

Win the Golden Ticket at Mode’s Easter High Tea

Savour a variety of carefully crafted menu that will treat the palate to a truly memorable experience. The three tiers of handcrafted sweets, savouries and scones on the Easter High Tea menu are made 100 percent in-house.

Just for the Easter holidays, kids are invited to take part in decorating their very own chocolate Easter egg, but the sweetest is what’s inside. Pastry Sous Chef Quentin Zerr has created a large chocolate egg that is nestled on top of a fluffy bed of Pariyas Persian fairy floss accompanied by edible chocolate paints for the kids to create a delicious masterpiece.  Once it’s painted, they will quickly want to dive inside to see if they’re a golden ticket winner. Two lucky winners will receive an overnight accommodation in the Family Fun package.  

Served in the relaxed ambience of Mode Kitchen & Bar, High Tea is available Friday through Sunday from 2:00 to 5:00 pm; and the Easter themed high tea is available the weekends of April 8-10 and 15-17, 2022.

Easter at Mode Kitchen & Bar

Executive Restaurant Chef Francesco Mannelli and his talented culinary team have unveiled an extensive menu to appeal to all appetites and preferences with a special set menu dinner on Easter Sunday.

For the set menu, guests will be taken on a culinary journey from the moment they sit down with delectable starters such as Easter duck and pork terrine, quail eggs, pickled baby radish and grilled focaccia to Mode Kitchen & Bar’s favourite wood-roasted zucchini flowers with buffalo ricotta, truffle, fresh peas and sprouts.

For the main course, guests will be impressed by the pan-roasted snapper served with organic spelt, broccoli, cavolo nero and “acqua pazza” or a risotto Acquerello with Parmigiano Reggiano and fresh black truffle.

No meal is complete without the signature frozen Easter pavlova with banana, pineapple, passionfruit and bee pollen – and for those looking for something traditionally Easter, there’s a specially crafted Mode Easter delice with carrot cake, dark chocolate and orange, crafted by French born Pastry Sous Chef Quentin Zerr.

Treetops Adventure St Ives

Treetops Adventure St Ives

Treetops Adventure St Ives

Soar to new heights on the rope courses and ziplines at Treetops Adventure St Ives, located at the St Ives Showground on the southern border of Ku-ring-gai National Park, Sydney.

Treetops Adventure St Ives

The newest in the Treetops Adventure parks, St Ives Tree Ropes Course Park boasts 95+ aerial obstacles and 10+ ziplines which can be experienced on their 8 tree ropes courses. Courses start at 1m for the littlest climbers, up to 15 metres for older kids and adults.

Treetops Adventure St Ives

Each climbing session at Treetops Adventure St Ives goes for 2.5 hours, which includes gearing up and a safety talk. 

Treetops Adventure St Ives

The climbing sessions run somewhat differently now at all of the Treetops Adventures parks, regarding children who can climb alone and those who need an adult to climb with them as a course supervisor. 

Treetops Adventure St Ives

Tickets are required for grown-ups who will be climbing as course supervisors. Tickets are not required for ground supervisors. See below for details on the age groups, courses and adult supervision required.

Treetops Adventure St Ives

What to wear

Secure, enclosed shoes (such as sneakers) are required. Treetops recommends wearing appropriate clothing, suitable for both the harness and physical activity. They do not recommend crop-tops, shorts and skirts that can ride up when worn with the harness. Long hair must be tied back. Gloves are provided but you’re welcome to bring your own gloves or purchase your own pair at check-in.

Treetops Adventure St Ives

KidZip sessions are available if you would prefer any kids aged 8-12 to climb without a supervising adult from your own party. In the KidZip sessions, a group of 20 or so climbers are taken through the various courses with a Treetops Adventure staff member. 

Treetops Adventure St Ives

While the KidZip option is an excellent one if you prefer not to climb yourself, be aware that the group is large (20+ climbers) and moves extremely slowly with only one staff member supervising. In our sessions, the kids only completed three ropes courses in the two hour period and spent a lot of the time waiting for the rest of the group to catch up. I would certainly advise the better option to get better value and more exercise would be to climb as a group with your own supervising adult.

Treetops Adventure St Ives

There are drinks, ice blocks and snacks available at the check in / booking desk, however there is no cafe at the facility or nearby. There are plenty of picnic tables to bring your own food however. 

St Ives Showground Playground

Before or after the climb, check out the excellent St Ives Showground Playground.

There is plenty of parking available  – drive all the way to the Treetops Adventure through the St Ives Showground.

Neighbourhood Earth: Exploring Our Solar System

Neighbourhood Earth

Neighbourhood Earth: Exploring Our Solar System

Experience space in an immersive, interactive exhibition that combines cutting edge technology and science to tell the story of space exploration with Neighbourhood Earth.

Neighbourhood Earth

Developed in conjunction with the U.S. Space & Rocket Center and NASA’s George C. Marshall, Neighbourhood Earth is an award winning exploration of space, transporting audiences across the galaxy through a multi-sensory cinematic environment.

Neighbourhood Earth

From the impressive entrance featuring a detailed scale model of the Earth suspended from the ceiling, set against videos of stars, galaxies and clouds of nebulae on the screens behind it, to the final room filled with hands-on activities kids and space enthusiasts of all ages will enjoy, Neighbourhood Earth is an educational, interactive and immersive look at our solar system.

Neighbourhood Earth

Neighbourhood Earth showcases rare space artefacts and scale models of some of the most important equipment in the history of space exploration,, including the Hubble Telescope and Ingenuity; the small helicopter which, earlier this year, became the first craft to make a controlled flight on another planet when it completed several short journeys on the surface of Mars.

Neighbourhood Earth

A fascinating part of the exhibition is the showcase inventions used in every day life like scratch-resistant lenses, dustbusters and ear thermometers, all developed with life on the International Space Station in mind.

Neighbourhood Earth

Visitors can also get a taste of life on the International Space Station, walking through a replica cross-section complete with a porthole designed to help them imagine they are in space, orbiting the Earth.

Neighbourhood Earth

The hands-on elements make Neighbourhood Earth particularly family-friendly, with a great range of fun activities to try such as keeping a satellite in orbit, building and shooting a rocket and designing your own space creation and seeing it come to life on a screen in front of you.

Neighbourhood Earth

The exhibition is currently on display at Sydney’s ICC in Darling Harbour. It is suitable for children (kids ages 2 and under are free), and there is ample space for strollers and wheelchairs (read an accessible review here).

Neighbourhood Earth

Allow 60-90 minutes to explore the exhibition fully.

Neighbourhood Earth

The best rates to see Neighbourhood Earth are week days, with Tuesday the cheapest day.
