Autumn Festival: Mother’s Day Weekend

Saturday 13th May and Sunday 14th May
Araluen Botanic Park

Join us this Mother’s Day weekend for train rides, mini golf, afternoon live music, art and craft workshops, and incredible autumn colour!

Kicking off the weekend on Saturday 13th May we will have train rides and mini golf from 10am-1pm. Then Brenton and Asher-Rose Music on the Roundhouse Lawn from 2-4pm, returning after great feedback from their Valentine’s Day performance! Jotterbook Flowers will run an awesome paper flower-making workshop in the afternoon at the Forest View Deck. The perfect Mother’s Day gift that mum can keep forever (bookings essential).

Then on Sunday starting at 10am Cabernet and Canvas will be running two painting workshops in the gorgeous Amphitheatre (or the Forest View Deck if it’s raining). These classes are so much fun for everybody and would make an amazing gift for Mum or Grandma (bookings essential). The train will also run and mini golf will be on site from 10am-1pm. In the afternoon we will have Odyssey, a local Perth Jazz trio, performing on the Roundhouse Lawn providing a great ambiance to your afternoon tea. Freedom Fairies will also be at the Park on Sunday from 1-4pm with face painting and a bubble show!

The Roundhouse Cafe will be open all weekend serving coffee, ice creams, and grab-and-go food options, and a couple of food vans will also be on-site over the weekend. 

Park entry is included in workshop bookings.
