Discover wild places this summer

If you're running out of ways to keep the children from killing each other and sending you crazy, why not get out an explore some of the amazing natural wonders and wild places on the North Coast during the National Parks and Wildlife Service's summer Discovery program.

Northern Rivers Discovery co-ordinator Kim Speirs said the program runs for most of January with fun filled activities for all different ages, such a Rockpool Rambles in Ballina, a Native Wildlife Safari in Alstonville, canoe trips and even a chance to see creatures by night.

There are also lots of Aboriginal art activities and a new special event this to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Gondwanna World Heritage Rainforests which includes guided activities on a Protestors Falls Walk in the Nightcap National Park on Friday, January 20.

Simply visit and look under Richmond Tweed to see the full program. Bookings are essential. Phone 6627 0200.
