Come on a WilderQuest WildThings excursion to explore the forest and alpine grasslands. Designed for Stage 1 students and focusing on science and technology, investigate the living world in this part of Kosciuszko National Park, home to amazing plants and animals.

We will use our senses to explore the environment and find some places where animals have everything they need to survive. Students will work scientifically with hands on activities to investigate bugs and learn about animal habitats.
Students will immerse themselves through nature play and discovery to enrich their understanding of the diversity and relationships that thrive in our protected areas.
