Bushtucker Tracker

Bushtucker Tracker

Mt Barney Lodge brings Nature Play to our Adventure Program. This is where outdoor education meets kids.

Kids will head off-track into nature with our Outdoor Leaders, exploring wildlife paths and corridors. They will be guided to places where they can discover native wildlife through the traces left behind like tracks and scat (kids get excited about poo!!). They will be encouraged to identify this hidden wildlife from laminated field cards, and from an interpretation of the size, shape and likely function of the foot prints.

Along the way there will also be the opportunity to learn about and taste local bush tucker where it grows wild. They will be (seasonally!) scrunching up aromatic leaves, cracking open nuts, sampling fruit, and chewing on grasses.

Learning through play, as well as a few icebreaker games will ensure the kids will have loads of fun.

This activity isn’t only hands-on, it’s tastebuds-on too!!

Register for Nature Play here, and you will be able to start ticking off completed missions when you have completed this activity!
