pademelon babyJoin in the adventure of our daily talks, tours and workshops!

We don't only have fun during the school holidays. We run a full program of activities every day throughout the year. Our daily schedule of talks, tours, interactive shows and activities like boomerang throwing is included with your entry ticket, there is no extra charge. See our Daily Ranger-led Activities schedule for more details of activites running every half an hour throughout the day. During school holidays and on weekends, we extend our afternoon bush tucker walk to take you all the way to the Aboriginal sites, so if you want to head out with your ranger on this one hour Walkabout Workshop, wear good walking shoes as the tracks can be rugged in places.

adeleYour questions answered:

What if it rains?

The weather never stops a ranger. It's even more fun in the wet. Just bring your raingear and get ready for an adventure you will never forget. (If the weather is extreme, we may cancel, but only if the weather is dangerous).

Can the children attend on their own?

No. This is the real bush. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult (and adults should be accompanied by a responsible child). The adult's responsibility is to ensure all of the rangers' safety instructions are followed.

Must we book?

If you are buying a General Entry ticket and joining in the fun of the daily ranger-led activities, you don't need to book.

If you are a Vacation Care or group of 15 or more children and you want to book a Walkabout Workshop, please contact us to arrange your special ranger-led adventure.

What should we wear?

Wear good comfortable flat closed shoes.
Wear a sun hat.
Bring your rain gear, just in case.

What else should we bring?

Bring the kids (and whoever else happens to be around).
Bring sunscreen even if it is overcast.
Bring insect repellant.
Bring water bottles (or you can buy water or juice at the cafe).
