This is a 1-hour ranger-guided experience. Kids will enjoy interactive games, discovery and play in the World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforest at Dorrigo National Park.

Children become predator and prey through nature games. They’ll get up close with rainforest invertebrates through leaf litter exploration and create their own clay critter to take home.

Kids should wear clothes that are sun-safe and okay to get dirty. We recommend long pants, long-sleeved tops to prevent bites and scratches, and sturdy enclosed shoes. Kids should also bring a raincoat, hat and sunscreen.
