Sheoak Ridge has an extensive array of hikes and trails, designed specifically for those who wish to observe animals and plants in their natural environment. While some believe seeing animals in a zoo is a good learning experience, we feel it is a far more rewarding and special experience to observe a healthy animal behaving naturally in the wild. Sheoak Ridge is managed purely to benefit the diversity of life that occurs here and we’d love to show you around our very special place.
We have many hiking trails on Sheoak Ridge, meandering through riparian rainforest, over open woodland ridges and beautiful valleys in between. Each of these areas is home to unique and amazing species. I’ll be updating this section soon listing the special features of each of the trails. 🙂
Some of the guided walks we offer focus on:
- Educational tours
- Bird watching/spotting
- Night walks (nocturnal animals & bioluminescence)
- Nature appreciation walks
- Flora – native species
- Invertebrate fauna – insects, spiders, millipedes, centipedes…
- An ‘Introduction to Nature’ walk especially designed for children and families.
If you’re into picnics and enjoying the outdoors we can also supply you with a picnic hamper filled with lots of goodies which we can either send out with you on your own adventure, or we can take to one of many beautiful locations to enjoy together.
