Welcome to the Spring Program 2019


"If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere."
Laura Ingalls Walker

The benefits of time spent in nature have long been known to many but missed by the majority. Now the science is in - if you’re looking for ways to be healthier and happier spending more time in nature will do you a world of good.

Our spring Bush Adventures program is packed with activities that will get you outside, discovering Hobart’s bushland reserves and introducing you to new ways of caring for them.  

Our bushlands come alive with colour in spring, so come and immerse yourself in the revitalising and energising wonders of nature. 

Activities include:

  • Tasmanian Aboriginal cultural events.
  • Aussie Backyard Bird Count.
  • Guided bird walks with local birdo Denis Abbott.
  • Bush Beats – natural music making workshops.
  • Waterbug surveys.
  • Bush Stories, Go Wild Go solo and activities for all ages. 

We look forward to seeing you out and about this spring.
