What People Say About Our Adventures


Winter 2014

17Sep2009_penguins_5266.jpgThis season we indulge you in a series of spectacular indoor seminars with local experts. Find out what quolls really get up to, discover the lives and tribulations of Tasmanian beetles, dig into the intriguing world of ants and find out what cats and dogs mean for wildlife in backyards. Plus, get outside for our introduction to handy bushland apps!

Little ones don their pyjamas for a possum party, find out whose feet belong to whom, explore the fairyland forest in winter and head out on a bush bingo scavenger hunt.  Our ‘Go Wild Go Solo’ gang learn to sketch animal skulls and navigate their way through history at Beaumaris Zoo!

Don’t miss fun for the whole family at our special ‘Mad Hatters Tree Party’ in celebration of National Tree Day!
