Come and join us every Wednesday & Thursday (excluding school holidays) at 11am for a day full of fun for your little ones with a 30-minute program, which will include storytime, games and Nature Play based activities. You might even get the opportunity to meet some very special animals!

On cooler days, the program will be moved indoors to our Outback Centre where you can cosy up to our fireplaces.

Bookings are essential.

Use our new Wildlife Pass to attend as often as you like!


Gumbuya’s Wildlife Wanderers is a Nature Play based program, that supports young children in developing a sense of autonomy as well as gaining connection and respect towards wildlife. Our program has been developed using the Early Years Learning Framework to create a fun and engaging learning environment. We will support your little ones in using their imagination and in connecting to the world around them.


Each week the program will be based around a new letter of the alphabet!
