Bush Adventures


“Now I see the secret of making the best person, it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.” 
- Walt Whitman

This winter our program is all about wonder and connecting with nature.

Join us for adventures to some of kunanyi / Mount Wellington’s best-kept secrets. There are alpine lakes, Jurassic boulder fields, ancient trees and sandstone caves to explore.

Discover the wonders of Waterworks Reserve as we explore its waterways, wander through its forests, taste fireside snacks in hidden overhangs and help build some special habitat for our feathered friends. 

As well as being full of physical fun, all of our adventures give you insights into the diversity and adaptations of the creatures, plants and fungi who call Hobart's majestic bushland reserves home.
