Take in the Royal Botanic Gardens from a unique perspective by enjoying a punt ride with your kids on the Ornamental Lake.
Punt Tours offer 30 minute cruises around the lake providing a serene and leisurely view of the islands and garden.
Each punt is a flat bottomed vessel making them very stable and suitable for children to ride in and there are no age restrictions. Life jackets are mandatory for all passengers under 12 years of age and Punt Tours provide these for the kids as well as for any adults that feel more comfortable wearing them.
The punts can seat up to 8 people on their luxurious velvet cushions and all weather conditions are catered for with parasols to keep the sun off or umbrellas to shield any rain, as well as blankets for chilly days.
Bookings are not essential but are recommended, especially during summer. Family tickets are for 2 adults and up to 3 children for $65 or single tickets are priced at $25 for adults and $12 for kids – littlies under 4 are free.
