Bush Adventures

Bush Adventures in winter

“Winter passed away; and spring, led by the months, awakened life in all nature.”
- Mary Shelley

Spring program 2020

Spring, the season of growth and renewal, ushers in a bounty of nature’s inspirations that draw us outside to explore and enjoy Hobart’s magnificent bushlands. 

Our spring Bush Adventures program will indulge your senses as we learn about nature’s essential role in everyone’s lives. As always the program includes a diverse range of activities - from the mountain to the river and in between.
