Redland children will soon be free to seek, unearth and explore their natural environment and local Aboriginal culture during a school holiday fun day at Redlands IndigiScapes Centre.
Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said Seek, Unearth, Explore, Quandomooka Country was a popular annual winter holidays event that drew hundreds of children from across the Redlands and beyond with its diverse program.
“As home to Redland City Council’s environmental programs, IndigiScapes is already a popular family destination with its walking trails, native botanical gardens, barbeque facilities, children’s playground and café,” she said.
“But it’s also a great space to bring together an assortment of fun and educational activities to coax young people away from their devices and into the great outdoors.
“On Friday 30 June, from 10am to 2pm, kids will be able to plant a seed, go on a nature scavenger hunt, create craft and weave with weeds – all for free.”
Divisional Councillor Murray Elliott said the IndigiScapes event would also celebrate NAIDOC Week, with Quandamooka storytelling and bush tucker, Indigenous art and dance workshops.
“Quandamooka traditional owner Matthew Burns will give an Aboriginal artifact talk that adults and kids alike will find fascinating,” Cr Elliott said.
“As with all the activities offered by the Redland City Council school holiday program, Seek, Unearth, Explore, Quandomooka Country is free of charge. But don’t forget to bring some loose change for the sausage sizzle.”
