Paint or draw the spectacular landscape of Barrington Tops National Park. Join an NPWS guide and guest artist Henrietta Mooney, an ecologist and student of natural history illustration. Henrietta will share her love of nature and inspire you to look closely at the details and hidden wonders of nature.
We'll amble along Honeysuckle Forest track, taking in the ancient rainforest. You'll have the chance to draw or paint small items found on the walk, including leaves, seeds and flowers.
After we've walked the track, you'll need to jump in your vehicle and take a short drive to Thunderbolts lookout. You'll witness a magnificent outlook over the plateau region of the park's wilderness. Enjoy capturing these panoramic views with your pencil or brush.
It doesn't matter if you've never drawn or painted before. Art kits will be provided, but bring your own art kit if you have one. You'll also want to bring your binoculars and a magnifying glass to see nature up close.
This park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia, celebrating its 25th anniversary since becoming World Heritage-listed. Barrington Tops is also celebrating its 50th anniversary since becoming a national park. So come along and experience the unique beauty of this special part of Australia.
