Does your tribe need a little bit of fairy magic? We’ve waved our magic wand and found the best fairy activities and fun all over Australia.
Fairy Park Melbourne
This fairy themed fun park is an enchanting adventure for everyone who visits. There are three main lands to explore including Fairy Tale Land, Camelot Adventure Playground and King Arthur’s Rock picnic grounds.
The Camelot Adventure Playground is a step back in time to a time of knights and maidens, where kids can explore secret passages and tunnel mazes in this medieval playground. Then wander through the magical Fairy Tale Land where there are 22 miniature animated, hand crafted fairy tale scenes. See favourites like Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Jack and the Beanstalk among other fairy tale favourites.
Ola Cohn’s Fairies Tree in Melbourne
In Fitzroy Gardens is the famous Ola Cohn Fairies Tree. There are carvings of fairies on one of the original red gum trees which is over 300 years old, creating a space for fairies and those who love them. Nearby there is a tiny miniature village and across the park you’ll find a magical dragon slide and giraffe swings for a play after your visit to the Fairies Tree.
Fairy and the Frog in Concord
The Fairy and the Frog host the most magical high tea events every now and again, or if you wanted to have your own personal high tea party, Fairy and the Frog is a fantastic place to go for some birthday magic. They also host school holiday workshops so keep an eye on their Facebook page to see events as they come up!
Storybook Garden Hunter Valley
Wander through the magical Storybook Gardens in the Hunter Valley Gardens for some fairytale fun. Favourites such as Hansel and Gretel, Humpty Dumpty and Jack and Jill all live in the gardens and be sure to grab a seat at the Mad Hatter’s tea party with Alice and the rest of Wonderland.
The Fairy Garden Adelaide Hills
The Fairy Garden is a shop dedicated to selling all things fairy for your very own fairy garden, but of course it has one of the most wonderful fairy gardens in Adelaide and attracts visitors from all over the world. When you arrive at The Fairy Garden, you need to ring the bell to inform the fairies of your arrival. The Fairy Garden is a family run business, and they love nothing more than helping those that love fairies to create their very own fairy garden, whether it be big or small.
Carrick Hill Storybook Trail
Down a sandy track and into the Carrick Hill Gardens, the tribe will find a Storybook Trail featuring famous tales like Wind in the Willows, The Jungle Book, Animalia, The Hobbit and even a Quidditch Tree from everyone’s favourite children’s story, Harry Potter.
The scenes encourage children to enjoy connecting with nature while using their imagination on this short stroll through the beautiful gardens.
WILD WINGS at Centennial Park
The summer school holidays bring with them holiday workshops, and one of our favourites is WILD WINGS fairy fun at the Ian Potter WILD PLAY garden. Kids are invited to make their very own WILD fairy wings using feathers, ribbon and natural materials. This year’s WILD WINGS event is yet to have a date so keep an eye on the Centennial Parklands website for all the details.
Careniup Wetlands Perth
This magical garden has been described as Perth’s very own ‘Secret Garden’. This stunning garden is part of the Gweliup Wetlands and once you are inside, the scenery is nothing short of breath taking. The Careniup Wetlands look like a real life fairy grotto, and whilst there aren’t any obvious signs of ‘fairy life’ happening here, we believe this is where the fairies would live if they could!
There are little streams and foot bridges, hanging vines and twisting pathways. This lush green space is very popular so be sure to plan your visit on a day that works for your tribe.
Brunswick Heads Fairy Trail
One of the many things Brunswick Heads is famous for is its Fairy Trail. When you stop in town, head to the Visitor Information Centre to pick up your clue sheet to help you on your way to finding the many hidden fairy houses around Brunswick Heads. The fairy homes are not placed in obvious places which adds to the magic of tracking them down.
The fairy houses are all made of recycled and found objects, and each home contains a special message for its visitors from remembering to be kind and to protect nature.
Cockington Greens Canberra
These miniature gardens are filled with quaint villages and miniature people, trains, lakes and even an international village with famous buildings from around the world. One of the very first gardens as you enter Cockington Greens is a fairy garden filled with fairy lights, mushrooms, fairies, gnomes and other magical fun.
