Dooloomai's Bush Kids


Bush Adventure Program for kids aged 8 - 12.


Playing outdoors is great for kids mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.

Spurred by concerns that children are spending less and less time outside there is a movement to get kids back to nature and reawaken their wild sides.

Dooloomai understands this and wants to give kids opportunities to get out amongst it by providing programs specifically for younger kids.

Our programs aim to cultivate connection to nature, develop bush skills and have a lot of fun!


Upcoming events:

We are running a 6 week Bush adventure program for kids 8 to 12 to explore their local bushland, connect to the natural world and build independence in the outdoors.


Each week we will visit a different patch of Hobart’s urban bushland to play, bush scavenger hunt, build shelters, observe nature, develop bush skills, create art, stretch imaginations and get grubby.


The program will run each Sunday 2pm to 5pm 26th April to 30th May. Kids can sign up for individual sessions or the whole program:

Whole program: $180 or $120 concession

Session: $30 or $20 concession
