Spring is a pretty magical time and is definitely in our top four favourite seasons at Woodhouse.
The temperatures start to rise and the days become longer. After the cold winter, the plants and trees start to blossom and flower and some new faces start to appear as many of our fury residents have their babies.
The cool (generally dryer) nights are prime for sitting around a campfire and roasting some marshmallows and the milder weather makes for some ideal camping conditions too.
SPRING TIME AT WOODHOUSE IS PERFECT FOR...
Sitting on 54 hectares of undulating gum-tree studded countryside, understandably, Woodhouse is home to all sorts of wonderful creatures. Venture around the property and don't forget to look up! You're sure to find a koala, maybe even with a joey in its pouch. Explore the Wetlands and Cox's Creek... what can you find in there? Can you spot the possums as the sun goes down - or the kangaroos as the sun rises?
What's so special about Spring? Counting how many animals with new born babies can you find!
Bring the family for a Day Adventure and climb, crawl, swing and splash your way through more than 30 obstacles on Woody's Challenge Hill, tackle a giant split-level maze, slide down two epic Tube Slides (slides open weekends only, even in the school holidays, though private group bookings can be pre-arranged at an additional fee), negotiate one of seven orienteering courses, conquer Cameron's Climb: the ultimate bouldering challenge, or have a round of Disc Golf (think golf with a frisbee). Enjoy the Wetlands Trail walk, cook up a storm on one of our free undercover gas BBQ’s or snuggle up around a campfire. Plus, our stunning 54 hectare property has plenty of trees to just sit under and read a book – or give a hug to, if you so desire.
