Get close to some cute possums

Hey kids - want to be a junior ranger for the morning at Kumbartcho Sanctuary? "Ranger Kim" will show you the ropes as she takes you along on her daily rounds of the sanctuary. Over the school holidays, Ranger Kim teaches prep to year 7 children all about the local habitat and wildlife at Kumbartcho Sanctuary.

Located on the edge of the South Pine River, Kumbartcho Sanctuary serves as an important wildlife corridor. The name Kumbartcho is a local Aboriginal word meaning "Native Hoop Pine" (Araucaria Cunninghamii) and the property is home to hundreds of native flora and fauna species and has its own native plant nursery (Open to the public Tuesday - Friday, 9am - 3pm ).

Native Hoop Pine - Kumbartcho

There is a shady BBQ/picnic area with fun playground for kids, so take some morning tea along and be prepared to play. If you're lucky you might get to spot a resident koala, a possum or two and some other interesting species of wildlife.

Join "Ranger Kim

All children get to choose a native plant from the nursery to plant in their own special pot to take home and nurture and grow (hopefully). After all that excitement, there will be the opportunity to do some coloring in and maybe a special treat to finish off the morning.

For a mere gold coin donation per child - this school holiday workshop is a real bargain and well worth the effort.

Bookings are essential via the website.
