Welcome to the Bush Adventures Autumn Program 2019


"Natures beauty is a gift that cultivates appreciation and gratitude". ― Louie Schwartzberg – director, producer, and cinematographer

This autumn the Bush Adventures team invites you into the wilds of Hobart to explore and discover the beauty, the wonder and special creatures and organisms who call Hobart home. The autumn program is filled with discovery walks, helping you to see nature anew and appreciate its interconnectedness. Local mycologists Genevieve and David lead us into the wilds again on the search for fungi, slime moulds and more discoveries of the relationships between, plants, fungi and life. 

The team from Nita Education will be facilitating a weavers and twiners workshop, sharing stories of one of the oldest living cultures on earth. For kids, this season we have lots of great opportunities to get outside and explore nature through the lens, on bike and on foot. As always, our Bushland Reserves are open for all to explore and enjoy. And remember, the simple choice of spending more time in nature will do you a world of good.

Activities include:

  • Bush Stories
  • The AMAZING race
  • Nest box building workshops
  • Go Wild Go Solo adventures
  • Mountain walks and lots more.

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