Get children back to nature and experience all of its benefits. Led by our expert team of education rangers, Bush School will inspire love for the natural world through games, bushcraft activities, stories and more. Bush School is a unique ten week nature play program for children aged 2.5 - 5 years.
Our Bush School autumn term is about to start, with a focus on Sydney's special autumn visitors: black cockatoos and whales. Join us for a ten-week journey of free play, stories, games, art-making, and learning all about this beautiful autumn theme.
