What People Say About Our Adventures
Welcome to the Bush Adventures Autumn Program, 2013
This season little ones try some new moves with Baby Bushland Yoga Bugs and the Caterpillar Club returns for a few fabulous escapades! Bush kids explore the mysteries of life under the river, learn the craft of clever camouflage, make some fabulous finger puppet friends and step into the wily world of water rats. And bigger kids go wild so they can learn the art of bush survival or unlock the mysteries of the Beaumaris Zoo using our clues and a compass.
For the whole family we have the chance to explore the wonders of the Mt Wellington summit, celebrate our small flying mammals at a Big Little Bat Party and get out in the dark for some super spotlighting! And adults delve into the world of Tasmanian raptors with a visit from the legendary Nick Mooney, explore the marvels of fire ecology, learn to rescue injured wildlife and head out for a fantastic Fungi Foray!
Plus don't miss a big day out at Sandy Bay in celebration of Parks Week! Discover some of the many great things you can do in our local parks and reserves or simply kick back in a beanbag with your picnic to the groove of live music.
Autumn is alive with adventures. Get outside and play!
