What People Say About Our Adventures

Welcome to the Bush Adventures Autumn Program, 2014.

We begin the season with a celebration of the Hobart Rivulet as part of Parks Week 2014. Come and enjoy the tranquil setting and see where the rivulet trail can take you.

Adults can meander to the picturesque O’Grady’s Falls for a cuppa, head to the pinnacle of kunyanyi/Mt Wellington for a guided mountain top stroll or discover the Macrofacts on Microbats with our very own Bat Girl.

Little ones change from caterpillars into butterflies and head on a pint-sized bushwalk. They make fantastic Finger Puppet Fauna and play like Little Devils Bigger kids discover the advantages of camouflage in a series of action packed games. Plus, don’t miss out on all of the family fun of the Big Little Bat Party.

Autumn is alive with adventure. We can’t wait to see you there!
