Ladybug Release

Join garden staff daily for the live Lady-Bug release in the cottage garden in front of the visitor centre. Help release hundreds of Lady Bugs into Kingsbrae Garden and learn how these tiny insects benefit the health of your plants and flowers. The mascot of Kingsbrae, Lucy the Ladybug, regularly makes appearances at this fun activity for the whole family.

Children’s Program

11:00am (July and August)

Following the Lady Bug Release, kids are welcome to join garden staff for a daily activity in the garden. From colouring, to art projects, to scavenger hunts, the program which lasts approximately one hour has something exciting to offer. Parents are encouraged to join in with the fun!



Alpaca Walk


Enjoy a fabulous lunch on the café patio while watching the Alpacas play on the stunning front lawn of the café.  Garden staff exercise the Alpacas everyday on the lawn for a hour for visitors to enjoy. Occasionally staff will bring along Moe the goat, who grew up with his best friend Philby the Alpaca. The walk is weather dependent.
