Welcome to the Bush Adventures Summer Program 2019

Let nature be part of your story making this summer as you create magical memories exploring and enjoying Hobarts diverse and beautiful Bushland Reserves. There’s lots on for kids in the school holidays as we explore, discover and play in the bush.

This season we’ve got two new activity leaders joining Lauren and Rob, each bringing a wealth of experience, passion and fun. Lilly and Emily have spent years working in Tasmania’s National Parks and World Heritage Areas sharing the wonder. This summer Lilly will show you a trick or two for capturing the best pics in nature, take the kids off exploring the wilds and leading you into the wild for a fun, energising mix of yoga and pilates-style exercises to stretch, align and strengthen your body and mind Emily will be sparking kids creative spirit with 'Mandala Magic' and more.

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
  • Flora the Explorer
  • Beach Play days
  • The AMAZING race
  • Wild Yoga
  • Nest box building workshops
  • Go Wild Go Solo adventures
  • Mountain Walks and lots more

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