Nature Play and our Adventure Activities

Friday, July 24, 2015

‘Nature Play – A Passport to an Amazing Childhood’ program, is designed to encourage kids and their families to visit national parks, and other outdoor places to do 'day-to-day' activities such as climb a tree, visit a beach, camp under the stars or visiting your local park.   

Along the way your children will complete Missions!

When you stay with us, get your FREE passport from the office and then when you get home and register,  your child will be able to 'tick off' missions completed while doing the Bushtucker Tracker. They can also write memories and any activities, stick in pictures, leaves or even drawings of different things they see and do while staying at Mt Barney Lodge. 

(Make sure you see the last three pages of the passport where you can complete missions NOW while staying at Mt Barney Lodge!).

When you get home:

  1. Register online here: register for a Parent/Guardian passport login here.  
  2. Once you have registered, you will create a profile and be able to choose from an exciting list of Missions for each child.  Make sure you choose Camping!
  3. Then you ‘tick off’ all the Missions you have completed while staying at Mt Barney Lodge. 
  4. Go outside and complete other nature play missions you have selected.  Then, completed missions are logged in your passport and  online.
