Choose the self guided walk most suited to the needs of your class through the Forest Gallery
, which is outdoors and houses almost 8,000 plants and a variety of live animals.
The Forest Secrets program encourages children to find out where birds, snakes and other animals live in the forest and how people interact with forest environments. Children will classify stick insects, frogs and eucalypt leaves, and investigate how their characteristics help them to survive in the forest.
An education kit, Primary Forest Walks and Biodiversity Audio trail, to use in the exhibition is available online.
Available Terms 1-4, Monday-Friday.
