What People Say About Our Adventures


Spring 2014


This season we venture up to the mountain to marvel at wildflowers, have breakfast with the birds at Waterworks and discover the bats of Knocklofty.

We invite you to come and enjoy several free special events on offer this season including: A celebration of all things Bushcare at Bushcare’s Major Day Out, Threatened Species Day and the first ever national Aussie Backyard Bird Count at Waterworks.

The school holidays are filled with adventures for the kids as we go and explore the frog ponds, hunt for bugs and spiders, fossick for rocks and test their skills in one of our bush challenges. There’s lots of fun also to be had for the whole family with an adventure with bat girl and our regular night walks at Waterworks Reserve.

For our smallest bush kids there will be plenty of exploring to do, with adventures to the frog ponds and mountain walks hunting for hidden treasure. We’ll also have a picnic with the pardalotes in celebration of National Bird Week and try to spot some of our feathery friends.

And if you are at the Sustainable Living Festival, don’t forget to come and say hello to us and the Bushcare team for more Bush Adventures fun.
