Pop on your wellys (rubber boots), put on your winter woollies and a rain jacket - now you are set for a Welly Walk!
Join us to find a puddle to jump in, some mud to squelch through and spot how many animals you can see. Each walk will be at a different location and the main focus will be on enjoying time together in the great outdoors – your kids will show you how it is done! There will also be an optional activity at each site.
Age suitability: 0 - 12 years with parent/carer
$5 per walk per family - this is inclusive 2 adults and up to 4 children. If you have more children attending, please purchase an additional ticket.
