Murder in the Garden

It's a murder mystery like no other: death, deception and theft at the iconic Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. 

In a rare opportunity to come within the Garden Gates after hours, you’ll journey along shadowy tree-lined paths, and into buildings old and new to interrogate suspects, inspect evidence and CCTV footage and try your hand at some forensic analysis.

Your challenge: to convict a murderer by the end of the night.

Bring your friends and work together to solve the mystery!

Every ticket includes:

  • After-hours access to the Botanic Gardens heritage buildings
  • Immersive theatre interacting with the suspects, detectives and fellow guests
  • A glass of wine and nibbles including cheese platters and antipasto spread on arrival
  • A who-dunnit detective booklet for note taking
  • Hands-on forensic activities
  • Entry to lucky door prizes
  • Viewing of the Plants with Bite carnivorous plants display at The Calyx

The evening begins with a semi-formal cocktail-style event. Arrive at 6pm for a 6.30 start. This will allow you to enjoy a complimentary glass of wine, an antipasto spread and other light nibbles and to view the Plants with Bite exhibition before we start the formal proceedings at 6.30pm.

Feel free to dress up to get in the mood! Perhaps avoid the stilettos however as we will be moving around the Garden throughout the evening.

This event requires a medium level of mobility as we will be moving around the Garden and in and out of heritage buildings. Please specify on booking whether you have any accessibility requirements, so we can best accommodate your needs.
