Weather forecast
The weather forecast for Good Friday is looking good. Low winds, partly cloudy, maximum of 16 degrees with no showers forecast. 

Children with special needs - we are able to provide a dedicated area in the egg hunt zone for children who have special needs. This area is quieter than the main egg hunt zone and adults may assist their child to collect eggs (egg hunt times are the same as above). There is an area on the online booking form where you are able to provide further information on your child and their requirements or you can phone our office on 6166 8088. Please visit the Research Foundation marquee at the Egg Hunt 15 minutes prior to your child's hunt time so we can escort them to their dedicated egg hunt zone.

Children under 3 - Easter Bunny will walk around the gardens and hand out eggs for children under 3 years of age.

Parking & Entry:
Free parking is available on the Domain with a free 'hop on - hop off' shuttle bus which will operate from 9.30am-2.00pm, taking patrons from the Domain to the Gardens. Pick up points include the Aquatic Centre, TCA Oval and Athletics Tasmania car parks. Please keep an eye out for the Easter Egg Hunt signs so you can see where the bus stops to collect you. Refer to the map attached, click here.

We encourage you to make use of this free parking. The bus will drop guests at the bus stop on Lower Domain Rd (it's then a very short walk to the gardens). Once inside the gardens just follow the bunny footprints and signs to the Easter Egg Hunt (NOTE - there is no patron entry from the lower gate located on the Domain Highway).
