Little Taccas

You're never too young to develop a green thumb!

The Little Taccas program, named after the tropical plant Tacca integrifolia, gives young children an appreciation for nature and gardening.  Aimed at children aged under five years, the fortnightly program features nature-based activities in the Cairns Botanic Gardens precinct, including art and craft, storytelling, sing-alongs and garden discovery walks.

When

The Little Taccas program is held fortnightly on Thursdays from 10am to noon. Children must be accompanied by a parent or care giver.

Bookings can include selected dates within the program or the entire program.
