The Redlands Indigiscapes Centre is a hive of activity and a joy to visit at any time of year. With a nursery, information and education centre, themed gardens and nature trails to explore, a cafe, gift shop and BBQ facilities on hand, Indigiscapes makes for a fun and family friendly destination. Kids are free to run amok at the playground, through the maze, on the flying fox and at the interactive koala wall. And best of all, entry to this bushland oasis is free.
An initiative of the Redlands City Council this sprawling green paradise is alive with local fauna and flora native to the Redlands area. The centre promotes nature-related activities, and has an action-packed program in store for these January school holidays which includes activities suitable for the whole family.
Take the Bushtucker Tour for Taste to learn about tasty bush foods and how to grow your own, and to sample some native bush tucker. Or get your creative juices flowing with the Weaving with Weeds, Paint Your Own Dragonfly or Make Your Own Echidna workshops.
Earth Explorer aims at introducing younger children to the extraordinary sights, smells, textures and colours of the bushland. For a nocturnal adventure try the Creatures of the Dark Spotlight tour to discover the wonder of the creatures of the night that call Indigiscapes home.
Indigiscapes provides a wonderful opportunity for families to enjoy a day together in the great outdoors and the workshops a fun and interactive way to learn about nature and conservation.
The workshops cost an average of $4 per person with family discounts available, and bookings are essential either by phone - 3824 8611 or email - firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information and the full program check out the Indigiscapes website.
And if you're there on the first Saturday of the month (5th January) head to the nursery for the monthly sale where all native plants are a mere $2.50 regardless of size.
