New activities for kids at Yarrangobilly Caves

Yarrangobilly Caves is excited to be introducing a range of WilderQuest 'Nature Play' school holiday activities that are designed to reconnect children with the natural world.

Cave Guide Sue Prosser in Jillabenan: Hunting Fairies at Yarrangobilly Caves in Kosciuszko National Park.

George Bradford, Yarrangobilly Caves Manager, said these new activities give kids a unique opportunity to explore the environment and learn through play.

"In this age of 'screen addiction' it's important for kids to spend time outdoors - not only for their physical health but also general well-being," said Mr Bradford.

"These WilderQuest activities do just that – they guide kids through this spectacular cave system and help them safely explore the plants and animals in the surrounding environment.

"Nature Play activities are driven by the children's particular interests and the natural elements.

"We're really pleased to be able to offer these new experiences at the caves and encourage parents and carers to book-in for the school holidays," Mr Bradford said.

We're Going on a Bug Hunt! (5 to 9-year olds)
10.30am until 12.00pm
Friday 20 and 27 April.
With a magnifying glass and keen eyes, children will explore the wonderful world of bugs and creepy crawly critters at Yarrangobilly Caves. They will follow their trails and find out what they look like, where they live and how they hide from predators.

Little Caves for Big Kids (6 to 12 years olds)
2.00pm until 3.30pm
Friday 20 and 27 April.
Children will be able to test their climbing, crawling and balancing skills as they explore Big Rock and Meat Safe adventure caves and the creek and forest between them. They will use found natural materials to build our own cave shelters and race bark canoes down the creek.
