What People Say About Our Adventures


Autumn 2015

Little_Devils.jpgThis season our youngest bush kids will be discovering the world of penguins and platypus. Older Bush kids have the opportunity to join an incredibly journey, have a sensory sensation and search the bush on a scavenger hunt or to discover whose poos or whose.

Our Go Wild, Go Solo gang will be improving their bush craft skills, from navigation to cooking the perfect damper.

Families can also build up their navigation skills with an orienteering workshop, and then find their way out at night for an adventure with Bat Girl or to discover where our wild things are.

Adults have options for any time of the day. Choose from morning yoga, a Growing Wilder lunch, an afternoon walk on the mountain or an evening discovering the macrofacts of microbats.
