Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Participate in the wonders and mystery of creation!


For those of you who might be like me and ever so technologically challenged when it comes to App 'speak', this explanation from Apple Store Preview puts it perfectly into perspective I think!

'Agents of Discovery is an augmented reality, geo-triggered app that gets you outside, active and engaged in the world around you. With Agents of Discovery, you become a top-secret Agent, dedicated to solving the greatest mysteries of science, culture, technology and nature. Download the app and the Mission you want to play BEFORE heading out. The app does not require any data or WiFi to run, once it's been downloaded.'

Important 'stuff' to remember
Please maintain social distancing. Luckily the Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Gardens boast an impressive eighty-two hectares and because the Bushland Mission can be done anytime between 6.00am to 5.00pm in the evening, makes this rule easier to follow.

Checkout the Wetlands Mission in Bli Bli that will be running parallel to this Bushland Mission, for more Agents of Discovery fun. The Bushland Mission at Maroochy Botanic Gardens goes live on the 19 June, so get set, to get out and play!
