The Hike Collective Kids Guided Hike

The Hike Collective – Kids Journey Stick and Scavenger Hunt Hike

Tuesday 12th July 9:30am
Araluen Botanic Park

Let your kids’ wild side explode, through a short 3km guided hiking experience exploring Araluen Botanic Park.

We create a space for children to play and imagine on a journey through nature, to get their hands dirty and have fun learning new skills.

We’ll provide them with the tools to build their own journey stick (also known as a story stick or nature stick). This acts as a memento of their nature hike, featuring items collected while on the trail. These might be things like leaves, twigs, flowers, feathers, or anything else natural that you find along the way (off the ground of course).

Children have these to remember their experience, and to embrace nature even after their hike. This tour also offers a great opportunity for parents and carers alike to connect with each other, enjoy quality time with their little ones, and find some movement in nature.

Tour Inclusions:

A guided hike through Araluen with first-aid trained guides (All guides come with Working With Children Checks)

Age-appropriate activities created and run by our first-aid qualified guides

Tools to create their own journey stick

Amazing stories and secrets covering local heritage of our fascinating hiking trail & surrounds
