There is no better way for children to create a stronger connection and appreciation for nature that through a repeat visits and experiences at Centennial Park.
When you book a Bush School bundle, you will receive 5 onsite Bush School excursions* and 5 Take-away Activities to deliver in your own learning spaces.
You can book your excursions for five weeks in a row, or spread them across one or more terms.
