My kids love being outside: exploring, playing, having fun and just hanging out. Even better, is when there are opportunities for them to learn in the process.

During our most recent visit to the south coast of NSW we discovered the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens where there is a fantastic children’s walk.

We  followed the trail and discovered little animals (pretend ones!) hiding in the bush. Signs explained what the animals were, what they eat and where they are normally found.

We all had fun, learnt a bit, stayed busy, interested and active. Lots of fun and the day was topped off by this do-it-yourself water feature!
