Let's journey into the wild!

We can play, learn and create new memories at Forest School.

There are no walls in our classroom, it's just you, me and the trees!

Come find us at one of our NEW Brisbane Forest School sites!

RAFT BUILDING

Will you sink or will you float?

Children will use hand tools (including bow saws, hammers, hand drills etc) and up-cycled materials to build a life-sized raft to float in the creek.

There are no instructions, they need to work together to figure it out!

All programs are a drop-off service to children over 7 years. If your child is under 7 they will require a parent or carer to attend with them.

Please note: We are an all weather program, however, to ensure your child's comfort and safety during unpredictable weather, we may relocate our Forest School Program to JC Slaughter Falls as this site has waterproof shelters. If this does happen you will be notified prior to attending your program.

You can also book for a full day (two sessions) and our staff will supervise your child during the lunch break at no extra charge. Just send a quick email to brisbane@wildlingsforestschool.com letting us know you've booked your back to back sessions.
