Keeping children entertained during the school holidays has never been easier. Captivate the kids with a shared family experience at our Education Centre with a fabulous taxidermy display which brings fauna of the South West back to life and offers a close view of our unique, secretive nocturnal native animals.

Native fauna taxidermies

The Wellington Discovery Forest education centre offers a fascinating and extensive collection of native fauna taxidermies, displayed within their native habitats. One of our experienced leaders will be available to provide information on the specimens.

To keep the kids engaged, we will be running some great documentaries and there is a touch table of interesting artefacts to look at and handle as well as a range of paper craft activities where they can build their own animal.
