After a very busy and successful 2013 – which we sent off with quite a flourish – we’re now busy again at the Forest with the start of our holiday program plus Chinese New Year Celebrations.
If you haven’t yet discovered the delights of the Australian Rainforest Sanctuary – locally known as the Forest of Tranquility – then we encourage you to do so in 2014. We’re based at Ourimbah, on the Central Coast of NSW and are committed to the care of and education for our environment. The Forest is a wonderful place for getting close to Australia’s rare native flora and fauna, a meditative space, a way to get away from the stress of everyday life and commune with nature.
Here is a summary of our events and activities through January and February:
Pirate Mermaids and Water Bugs – 19 January –
10 am for 10:30 start. Details below http://www.forestoftranquility.com/events.php
