School Holiday Activity Days + Family Camp

explore, create, go WILD!

Bring your kids to Wangat in the school holidays for wild days of nature-based adventure and fun! With experienced guides kids will explore the beautiful rainforest, rivers and creeks of Wangat and its surrounds and learn about the natural environment and bush crafts. From finding fungi, discovering wildlife and cooking damper on the fire to navigating a treasure hunt, building a forest adventure playground and more… kids are never bored at Wangat!

Participants can come just for the day or stay at Wangat with their family and friends in our affordable accommodation. The lodge rooms can be booked ‘hostel-style’ during the holiday camp with families allocated private rooms, or stay in one of our self-contained bush cottages (availability permitting). A great idea for an affordable, fun family getaway!


Winter Holiday Camp

Our Winter camp runs from July 8th–12th with activities facilitated on the 9th, 10th and 11th. Lodge accommodation available July 8th-12th.

Activity days for children aged 7+ run from 9.00am - 3.30pm. Parental attendance not required but always welcome. Older kids are invited to take on a ‘mentor’ role working with our guides to support younger adventurers.

For the first time we will run a new, daily program specially designed for under 7’s running daily from 9.30am–1.00pm. Parent attendance is required.

We will also be lucky to have massage therapist Rikki Anne on site. Rikki practises Kahuna massage, also known as Hawaiian Massage or Lomi Lomi… ‘a gift to us from the ancients of Polynesia, whose shamans would use similar techniques to move energy through the body in a healing way. Nurturing, yet deep, Kahuna massage changes depending on the patient's needs and can be modified for any body. Your Kahuna massage will leave you feeling balance and nurtured, inside and out! Many clients say it is their preferred style of massage for these and many other benefits!’
