Get outside and into nature during the July school holidays

If the kids are driving you wild indoors this July school holidays, get them outside and active at Mulligans Flat!

We have activities for all ages from toddlers to preschoolers, primary and high school kids.

On our Secret Life of Critters tour see if you can spot the difference between a Bettong and a Quoll!

We have 40 wildlife cameras setup around the Sanctuary snapping pics of animals. These photos have been uploaded to an online program called Digivol. On this tour  let one of our rangers show you how we monitor animals in Mulligans Flat and show you what you can do to help – by becoming a Citizen Scientist. We have two sessions running on Mondays.

On Tuesdays you can wander and wonder at the woodlands with Githabul woman Kristi Lee and Wiradjuri woman Dhani Gilbert. During the Kids on Country tour you’ll learn about local bush tucker, hear stories from the land as well as discover the animals that call Mulligans home.

Then on Tuesday nights we’ll be running Kids Night walks, an exciting way to see nocturnal wildlife. With spotlights kids will get to see Mulligans Flat in a whole different way. All ages are welcome on this tour and bookings are essential as places are limited. Please note accompanying grown ups will also need a ticket for this tour.

Bird Quest is a great way to get kids out in nature, while they search for rare birds with one of our enthusiastic experts. We’ll be running tours on Wednesdays during the school holidays. Accompanying adults are free, and this tour is suitable for kids aged 5 and up.

On Thursdays join our Hollow Homes tour, where kids get to be spies! Using the spycam, children aged 5 to 13 years will wander the bush checking out which creatures are living in the tree hollows of Mulligans Flat.

Kids still driving you wild at home? Then hop on over to Jerrabomberra Wetlands for more school holiday activity ideas.

See you soon at Mulligans Flat!
