A variety of nature-based and family activities are being hosted by the Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk during the school holidays.

The holiday program, which runs until January 15, will deliver some new activities as well as some old favourites.

Department of Parks and Wildlife regional manager Luke Bentley said the program was designed to encourage participation in the region’s national parks.

“An exciting addition to the program is the inclusion of bush art, where children can join our guides to create an amazing collage using natural ingredients,” Mr Bentley said.

“A fire and flora walk with an experienced guide will show how fire has influenced our unique plants and the ‘go with a ranger program’ will allow visitors to learn about the Mount Frankland National Park.”

He said “the old favourites” included bug hunts and guided forest-by-night activities.

“There are free activities too, such as the Forest Detective where youngsters are encouraged to search for clues and information in the forest as they work through an activity sheet,” he said.

“Late Night Fridays offer a twilight experience at the walk and on a beautiful summer evening visitors can BYO a picnic and a enjoy a dinner on the deck.

“By capturing the imagination of both young and old about the importance of our environment through our holiday activities, they will become strong supporters of our national parks in the future.”

A selfie competition is being run through the tree top walk Facebook page and the best entry will receive a year’s free entry to the tree top walk.
