Flinders Chase National Park in Kangaroo Island is celebrating its centenary in October 2019 with lots of free activities for all ages. You are invited to come and join in the fun.
On Monday the 7th, there will be a ranger pop-up at the Admirals Arch boardwalk where you can discover the history of the early pioneering lighthouse keepers, the disastrous shipwrecks, and the resident fur seal population.
On Wednesday the 9th, your kids have the opportunity to play with clay and get creative. Children will be guided by rangers in making their own Australian animals from clay. And, on the next day (Thursday 10th), the fun continues with the creation of their own ranger badge, nature journaling, and tracing the Australian bush. And again, the following day, on Friday 11th, if your kids still have the energy, they can learn the basics of bush exploration. A sausage sizzle will also be provided, along with snacks and fruit. Bookings are essential for all these events.
Also, on Thursday the 10th, there will be a ranger-guided interactive nocturnal platypus tour for those who are interested in an easy hike. Minimal fitness is required to explore the Platypus Waterholes Walk. Once again, bookings are essential although the event is free with park entry passes.
Finally, to finish off the celebrations, a community open day will be held on Saturday the 12th with various park tours running throughout the day and some kids activities to keep them entertained as well.
