Expect a buzz of excitement when National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) education rangers showcase the wonderful world of nature during special sessions in Blue Mountains National Park over the summer holidays.

Learning how to make a home for bees, art sessions and bush navigation are just some of the fun activities available over the summer break.

NPWS ranger-guided experiences in Blue Mountains National Park aim to nurture a curiosity and appreciation of nature in our national parks in a fun and interactive way.

NPWS education ranger, Gill Tutton said the activities are designed to engage children aged four to 14 years.

“Our team of rangers have a range of fascinating school holiday activities planned in Blackheath and Glenbrook this Summer,” Gill said.

“Children can discover the wonderful world of lizards, make their own bee hotel, learn how to navigate, immerse in Aboriginal cultural art or traditional games, and get creative with clay. The activities are scheduled throughout January during the summer school holidays.”

Bookings must be made in advance in order to secure a spot on the day and take part in these exciting summer activities in NSW national parks.

Holiday activities cost $20 per child.

A full list of sessions and more information is available on the NPWS website.

Bookings can also be made on the website at here

If you can’t make it to one of the scheduled sessions, children of all ages can experience one of the world’s most spectacular canyons with its high rock walls and waterfalls in complete safety at the Blue Mountains Heritage Centre in Blackheath.

Using cutting-edge virtual reality technology kids will be able to ‘walk’ through one of the most the challenging canyons in the Blue Mountains, the Claustral canyon

The virtual canyoning experience costs $10 for 15 minutes and no bookings are required. More information can be found on the NPWS website at here
