The Ultimate Outdoor Classroom
Open 7 days a week, also during school holidays, school groups can explore the Park and organise the ultimate outdoor classroom experience. Araluen is a great place to host science and biology classes, environment & conservation workshops, or to learn more about WA history and the YAL.
Whether you want to use one of our open and safe areas to run a specific classroom activity, join one of our scheduled activities, book in a guided tour or plan a self-guided hike around the park, we are happy to accommodate your group according to the requirements and budget.
The Park offers plenty of grassed areas where groups can bring their own lunches and enjoy the landscape. There are also free electric BBQs available to use throughout the Park.
Autumn at Araluen
Autumn brings shorter days, lower temperatures and, hopefully, good rainfall that will continue throughout winter. As the weather cools down in the autumn months the park transforms into a new coat of yellows, reds and oranges. Autumn tones blanket the Park with splashes of colour across deciduous trees from April.
If you are bringing your group during the autumn months (or during the Easter School Holidays), why not taking advantage of the autumn foliage and explaining to your classroom why trees change colour. Or why not spending some time bird-watching: April is also an excellent time to see birds as the young adults are moving around feeding before settling into territories to breed in the spring. They are not so secretive and the Park is a bit more open with deciduous trees and pruning.
If you would like to bring your group to Araluen to explore the flora & fauna, and run your own ultimate outdoor classroom experience, get in touch today.
