Get out and about this autumn with Go Bush!


Autumn heralds an end to the relentless summer heat, and provides perfect conditions to explore and enjoy the great outdoors with the Environmental Protection Agency's Go Bush activities here on the Sunshine Coast.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranger Cheryl Thomson said children, adults and families would all enjoy exciting outdoor activities that only Queensland's national parks and forests could provide.

"From early morning to evening activities, there's something around the clock for everyone," Miss Thomson said.

"Do creatures of the night amaze you? Find out some interesting facts about our nocturnal neighbours on ranger-guided spotlight walks at Noosa and Mapleton Falls national parks.

"Go Bush is active, educational and fun. There are activities for kids and families that are being held in locations around the Sunshine Coast."
