Wander through the tall gums, watch out for birdlife overhead and in the creek and let the kids run, climb, paddle or navigate the goat paths alongside the creek.

Voices of the Village will be officially opened by Major Glenn Spear at 11.00am. He will unveil artwork by classes at St Joseph's School and Scotch College.
