What animals live in the Waite Arboretum, and where?
The Waite Arboretum has recently launched a new Wildlife Orienteering Trail (WAWOT). The trail incorporates 30 metal creatures from beetles and butterflies, to lizards, bats and koalas! Visitors of all ages are encouraged to explore the Arboretum and try their self-guided discovery of the wildlife found in the Waite Arboretum.
Download or pick up a copy of the Trail quiz and map to guide your visit. The map has numbers where each of the creatures are living: see if you can work out what they are, and start your self-guided discovery of the wildlife found in the Waite Arboretum!
Please follow this link and print a copy of the WAWOT quiz/map before heading to the Arboretum: https://www.adelaide.edu.au/waite-historic/arboretum/wildlife-orienteering-trail/
Some copies are also available in the box located on the benches under the Chinese Elm in the Rose Garden – just in front of the Labyrinth.
It is always a good plan to come with your little ones and let them connect with Nature. The aim of the new trail is just that! Give the children the possibility to connect and enjoy our wonderful Arboretum from another perspective!
