Have a Wild Time outdoors these school holidays

A new school holiday program in Katherine will help children discover their sense of adventure.

Wild Time takes young explorers on a voyage of discovery to experience and investigate some of the wildlife and national parks in the Katherine region.

Department of Tourism and Culture, Community Engagement Officer Parks and Wildlife Commission, Clare Pearce said the new program was aimed at educating children and helping connect with nature from an early age.

“A wonderful thing about living in the Territory is the exposure to the great outdoors, the Wild Time program is a great way for children to learn how to enjoy our Parks safely while learning, being active and of course having fun.”

“The session will be a wild time for the kids and they will be encouraged to play the ultimate game of hide and seek, they will spy, spot and search the bush while learning what the world around them is made up of.”

The program is open to kids aged between 5-10 years old and all participants must be accompanied by an adult 18 years or over.

Sessions are held every Tuesday over the school holidays and there is a new location and area to discover each week:

Bug out at Leliyn: Tuesday 27 June from 10:00am-11:00am
Limestone Lovelies at Cutta Cutta: Tuesday 4 July from 10:00am-1:00pm
