Are you ready to meet Rainforest Creepy Crawlies?
From Monday 23rd-Monday 30th August, it’s your chance to get up close and personal with a variety of rainforest residents and learn about their habitat and role in the food chain.
Ever been face to face with a tarantula or spitting distance from a poison dart frog? This is your moment!
We have the intrepid Paul Carpenter joining us from his global travels to give live “Life in the Rainforest” workshops – introducing children to the fascinating world of exotic rainforest creepy crawlies. He even has a spider named after him that he discovered!
A frequent visitor to rainforests around the world, Paul will talk about his creatures and their natural habitats, food chains and challenges to provide a hands on appreciation of our beautiful and precious natural world.
And the Bug Fest doesn’t end there! Follow our own Beastie & Butterfly trail teeming with fun facts and discover many minibeasts on the way.
You will also have access to our brand new Adventure Farm Barn where you can meet the animals and enjoy even more farm life fun!
To fuel your adventures, our Old Barn Cafe & Farm Grill will be open and we’ll also have delicious homemade ice cream specials throughout the week.
