Discover Victoria's mountain forests when your students step into a living fern gully complete with waterfall. Follow the pathway to discover how water shapes the landscape and take a close-up view of small fish, frogs and skinks.
Emerge from the rainforest into the eucalypt trees where Forest Secrets is alive with seasonal change and learn about the local Kulin Aboriginal people’s seven seasons. Look up to see the Tawny Frogmouth, while tiny wrens and finches flit across the path. In a clearing at the end, see huge timber poles which represent the impact of fire on the bush.
Primary students can classify insects, frogs and eucalypt leaves, and investigate how their characteristics help them to survive in the forest.
Secondary students consider such questions as: Where do animals live? How do people interact with forest environments? What is the significance of fire for plants and animals?
