Tidbinbilla School Holiday program sounds fun

By Barcham - 4 July 2013 6

Have your children experienced the bland and forgettable cultural icon that is damper yet?

Well then you better take them to Tidbinbilla these holidays!

Don’t fret, it’s not just damper. There’s story telling, exploring, some activities involving animals. It all sounds pretty cool.

Except for the damper.

“During the month of July there will be a range of special activities at Tidbinbilla that offer children and other visitors the chance to discover the wonders of the local area,” said Lisa Hogan, Visitor Services Manager for National Parks and Catchments.

“Each weekend you can explore the Sanctuary and keep an eye out for platypus or learn about the corroboree frog breeding program.

“During the school holidays there will be a variety of activities for children, including Aboriginal art and a traditional Aussie bush experience with billy tea and damper on offer.

Want more information about the holiday activities at Tidbinbilla? Call the Visitor Centre on 6205 1233 or visit www.tams.act.gov.au.

Unless you have damper with revoltingly strong tea and possibly a slab of stolen jumbuck, you are just not Australian enough.

You said some stuff Barcham, but all I heard is damper, and now I want some.

Was with Harrison Scouts at Cotter last night as they learned fire-lighting (what could possibly go wrong?) and damper making. It went down a treat with Golden Syrup. Just suspend all hygiene concerns for a day…

I also discovered that they closed the park today because of the wind.

I had a look at this and even went on to peruse the Tidbinbilla website. It’s a shame that neither provides a skerrick of info on what actually is happening and at what particular times. The website, whilst attractive has not a mention of school holidays that I could see. I think they may fall foul of the weather and other events that are more organised.
