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 Discovery 2.0 can be done anytime between 7.00am and 5.00pm in the evening, this rule will be much easier to follow.

Check out the Agents of Discovery at Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve for the Rainforest Discovery in Maleny sleuthing fun, that will be running simultaneously to the Bushland Discovery Mission.

Solve all the challenges and become an Agent of Discovery!

If you absolutely love the augmented reality apps - like I do - why not venture off to meet the Gruffalo and his friends, who are presently visiting The Ginger Factory. September school holidays look like they are going to be super-duper busy with a lot of sherlock-holms-ing going on!
