“Gramping” at Mount Field

THE Parks and Wildlife Service is inviting seniors to experience the fun of “gramping” with a special event for Seniors Week from 16-22 October.

The special free event, where grandparents camp with their grandchildren, will be held at Mount Field National Park from 3pm on Saturday 21 October until 11am Sunday 22 October.

Parks and Wildlife Service community engagement officer Sam Cuff said the event would celebrate the connections between generations in a sensational World Heritage Area.

“It’s an experience the whole family will enjoy with Discovery Ranger activities including games, storytelling around the fire, billy tea and damper, spotlight walks, glow worms and morning yoga,” she said.

“Mount Field is a sensational national park, with four of the state’s 60 great short walks providing easy access to natural wonders such as Russell Falls, Lady Barron Falls, majestic tall trees and the stunning pandanis at Lake Dobson.”

Camping fees will be waived for the gramping event, but a valid Parks Pass is required.

The campground has powered and unpowered sites, an amenities block with hot showers, coin operated laundry facilities and hot water.

Booking for the gramping event is not required and it will go ahead regardless of the weather, with some inside activities provided in poor weather.

For more information, phone the Mount Field Visitor Centre on 6288 1149.
