Hide 'n' Seek Children's Trail, Mt Coot-tha

by Sophie Cannon (follow)
Hidden within Mt Coot-tha's botanic gardens, children will love playing explorer for the morning at the Hide 'n' Seek trail, a walking track filled with all sorts of fun facts and things to find.

Grab a brochure from the information desk and make sure to bring along a pen or pencil to mark off the checkpoints as you go. The trail starts at the Japanese gardens and there are 17 hidden treasures to spot, along with numerous other treats for the eyes.

Each checkpoint is home to an information board with riddles to answer, activities to carry out or simply just fun facts about the rainforest's most loved creatures and plants. There are also a series of sculptures hidden along the trail that kids will love to track down and have pictures taken with.

The Hide 'n' Seek trail is the perfect way to get kids outdoors, being active and most important of all, having fun. Although the activity is aimed at younger children, older brothers and sisters usually can't resist weighing in on their siblings navigation skills.

A long walk, no matter how much fun, can sometimes be tough on little legs, so there are plenty of shaded areas along the way that make the perfect rest stops to take a break and maybe even enjoy a picnic.

Whilst kids play detective, mum and dad are able to enjoy the beautiful views that the gardens have to offer, and once the trail is complete, there is still so much more left to do! Why not sit and enjoy a coffee whilst the kids play on the botanic garden playground? Or head over to the Mt Coot-tha Planetarium and be at one with the stars! You could also check out the ducks and other wildlife at the garden duck pond, or even feast on a delicious snack or lunch at the 'Botanics Cafe'.

So many options for an awesome family day out!
