Autumn … the season when days become shorter, the nights become longer and the temperatures drop considerably - all great reasons to get out and about to celebrate the cooler days and spectacular changing colours of the pre-winter season.

Children and families will absolutely love the seasonally-inspired workshops being hosted throughout the Bushland Holiday Program at the Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Garden . The regional bushland setting is both teacher and inspiration for environmental learning, bushcraft skills and creative play. Through the popular Bushland Holiday Program, participants gain confidence in outdoor play, whilst connecting to the Sunshine Coast’s native flora and fauna.

Inspiring connection with nature through imaginative play and immersive learning, these educational workshops are led by experienced nature play facilitators and held in the spectacular bushland.

Workshops are held on various days throughout the school holidays. Please read the workshop dates, descriptions and age suitability carefully, when making ticket selections.

Explore and learn new bushcraft skills and creative play

Autumn is the perfect time to celebrate the element of Earth. In the Gems of Earth workshop, participants will learn all about precious rocks, stones and crystals of earth. Choose your favourites and learn a special way of tying knots - called macrame - to make your own gem hanging to take home.

Magical places to be found in the Botanical Gardens

The insect realm loves Autumn, which shows the abundance of insects to be found - butterflies, caterpillars, cicadas, spiders, moths and mantis. Children will have fun making their own pocket-sized journals with paper and string and then heading off to find and sketch as many Autumn creatures as they can find. Do you think the creatures will sit still long enough to be able to draw them?

Watch on in fascination to see what other animals create bubbles during the Bubble Bender workshop


TUESDAY 9 APRIL : BUBBLE BENDER | 9.30am to 11.30am

Autumn is the season to take care of one’s lungs. Children will make bubble blowers with bamboo and beads, then blow-breathe-blow to spread the joy of bubbly happiness throughout the Botanic Gardens. Children will have the opportunity to explore and look for bubbles in the lagoon to discover which animals could be making their own bubbles.

Make new friends ...

AGE: 5 PLUS YEARS
FACILITATOR: NATUREWEAVERS
ONLY $10 PER PERSON. PLEASE PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS ONLINE HERE

Masks, wands, crowns and jewels. Children will create their very own all-natural costume from natural treasures, with a little string and a little glue to help. Imagine … a pendant woven from fibres; a petal-covered mask or a cape of twined grasses.

Fun in the sun ...


Once children are ‘dressed’ in nature, they may be able to hide themselves in the Gardens to become a character in the forest. How magical is that!

Spaces are limited to these workshops and have already started selling out. Make sure to get in quickly to reserve your spots.
