Toolangi Forest Adventure

Bring your multi-age School Holiday Program (aka. Vacation Care or Outside School Hours Care Program) children to explore the wonders of Toolangi State Forest!

Visit tall trees, soft ferns, mountain creeks, a logging area and our Discovery Tree Room.

Learn what makes a healthy forest habitat, how forest animals are adapted to their environment and discover the different ways that people use forests.

Activities include:

  • Visit our Discovery Tree Room to explore the replica trunk of a Mountain Ash Tree and get up close with our taxidermy animals.
  • Feel the air in a protected Cool Temperate Rainforest and taste the creek water (optional)
  • Look up to the tall tree tops from within the Mountain Ash forest
  • Hunt for different plants, clues of forest animals and ‘minibeast’ insects
  • See a clear felled logging coupe

What to bring: A bus must accompany this program. Bring lunches to enjoy in the forest.

Gould League does not operate in Toolangi on days with a Fire danger rating of Severe, Extreme and Code Red in the North Central Fire District. On very rare occasions, programs may be postponed due to extreme weather predictions involving wind/storms. In both cases, these programs will be rescheduled at the earliest convenience of both parties.
