The hit animated television series Bluey is coming to life at Wakehurst, as Bluey, Bingo and the gang take over the gardens in Sussex to create the ultimate Easter day out. With fun-packed activity zones spread across the landscape, families and budding adventurers have the chance to design their dream day. Set amongst colourful springtime blooms, Bluey at Wakehurst is a must-do for the holidays.

Following the adventures of a lovable six-year-old Blue Heeler puppy and her family, Bluey has captured the hearts of children and adults alike, forming the perfect inspiration for festival-style family fun at Wakehurst. Families will kick off their adventures at the Welcome Zone, where photo opportunities accompanied by the Bluey theme tune set the scene for their day ahead. Nearby, in the Toddler Zone, children can enjoy colouring and imaginative play amongst the trees.

Each playful zone promises laughter and discovery, from a DIY ‘Barky Boats’ activity in the Water Zone to wildlife spotting in the Australia Zone. Tree Trunk Trek is transformed into a Bluey Play Zone, with obstacle courses and slack lines, whilst a Family Zone at the centre of the site will host storytelling and chill-out areas for all to take some time out from a jam-packed day.

The family-favourite Mud Kitchen plays host to the Dirt Zone where children can get hands-on, making mud pizzas and enjoying nature-based play and dotted around the site, ‘Dance Mode’ stations will encourage the whole family to embrace the fun and dance in Bluey style.

Wakehurst Programmes Manager, Emily Jones commented:

“At its heart, Bluey is imaginative, adventurous and full of warmth, and we really wanted to evoke these core values through the trail at Wakehurst. We hope that by offering a range of different playful zones, families can enjoy the ultimate day out, where generations come together and leave with long-lasting memories.”

Senior Marketing Manager at BBC Studios Kids & Family (UK & EMEA), Katie Hibbs added:

“We are so excited for Bluey’s arrival at Wakehurst this Easter. They have cleverly taken inspiration from many beloved moments from the show and created fun outdoor play activities across the site. This offers families the opportunity to have the perfect day out, celebrating nature and the joy of play with Bluey!”

Throughout the gardens, spring brings the landscape to life, reflecting the colourful palette of the show itself, as striking magnolia arches over winding boardwalks, bright daffodils line the borders of Mansion Pond, and an array of bold rhododendron adorn the gardens. A dazzling carpet of bluebells greets visitors in Bethlehem Wood, as they embark on an adventure ‘down under’ into the Australia Zone at Coates Wood, home to a unique collection of Wollemi pines. Thought to be extinct until 30 years ago, Wollemi pines date back to the time of the dinosaurs, and Wakehurst is home to 15 of the first ever Wollemi pines introduced to the UK.

Elsewhere in the gardens, budding Nature Heroes will also have the chance to earn their second badge of the year in a special plant-saving mission Plant Pals, on a quest to understand what plants need to thrive. With inclusivity at the heart, the Family Zone will host BSL storytelling on selected dates and the gardens will be acknowledging World Autism Day on Tuesday 2 April, with reduced capacity along the trail.

Whether it’s young families looking for a jam-packed day, or grandparents seeking to make new memories in a beautiful botanical setting, Bluey at Wakehurst is guaranteed to deliver laughter, discovery and lots of fun this Easter.

Please note, the Bluey trail takes place in some dog-free areas of Wakehurst.
