How exciting! The perfect excuse to venture outdoors these school holidays with the children - a digital game that uses GPS technology to unlock a self-guided Wetlands Mission adventure at the Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary in Bli Bli.

Fantastic walking trails for the whole family at the Wetlands Sanctuary

There is so much to learn and discover at the Wetlands
During the upcoming school holidays from Friday 19 June to Sunday 12 July, head off to the Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary to meander between the mangroves for a fun, educational adventure of discovery. Families will love unlocking the mysteries of the Wetlands.
Please maintain social distancing. Luckily the Wetlands Mission can be done anytime between 6.00am to 5.00pm in the evening, which will make it easier to follow this rule.

Wear protective clothing and use mozzie repellant, just in case ...
