Following the success of the standalone event in April 2014, the Adventure Kids Festival returns in 2015 as a series of four events, offering children from the ages of four to 12 nature-based adventure activities across a multi-day getaway.

The Adventure Kids Festivals will be hosted in different locations boasting the best of the Victorian outdoors, kicking off with the peaks and valleys of Mt Hotham over the Australia Day long weekend.

Amidst growing concerns that Australian kids are spending increasingly more time in front of screens than participating in physical activity, the Adventure Kids Festivals aims to promote the benefits of outdoor activity and adventure play for families with walks, runs, climbs, obstacles courses, bike rides, orienteering and more.

The events are accessible and affordable with all sites located close to the convenience of transport and amenities. A wide range of packages and choices are on offer at each venue. Tent city camp grounds will be established at most sites, allowing kids and their families to stay in tents without the requirement for owning all their own gear. From camping to self-contained apartments with panoramic views of the bush, there is an accommodation solution for all budgets.

The first Mt Hotham Adventure Kids Festival (24-26 January) is situated at the Big D Kids Snowzone, offering nature-based activities around an open ridge line surrounded by snow gum covered slopes, dropping spectacularly to the valley below.

Mt Baw Baw will host the Adventure Kids Festival from the 28-29 March providing a pristine natural environment to explore, with its many trails climbing the tree-covered slopes and crossing the beautiful meandering alpine streams. Falls Creek’s relaxed small town feel offers the perfect setting for the Festival over the Easter long weekend (4-5 April) with its trail network and views across the shimmering waters of the Rocky Valley Lake.

The final instalment of the Adventure Kids Festival series coincides with Victoria’s Nature Play Week, an initiative as part of the Premier’s Active April which challenges Victorians to be more active, more often. Taking place at Lake Mountain from the 18-19 April the alpine haven offers day trip facilities, flying foxes and rollerskiing.
