Nearer to Nature co-ordinator Jill Francis said the July 18 cave activity was for four to seven-year-old children.

‘Children can join Faerie Cara in the wonderful subterranean landscape of the Yanchep caves and discover an enchanted environment unlike any other in the natural world,’ she said.

There are also activities for Naidoc Week.

‘Four to seven-year-olds will also love the Coolangar Dreaming session on July 10, in which they can discover the rich culture of the Nyungar people making bush jewellery, decorating a boomerang and other activities,’ Ms Francis said.

‘The Discovering, the six seasons session on July 10, is aimed at seven to 12-year-olds.

‘Aboriginal people traditionally had six seasons instead of four and kids can journey through these six seasons with a Nyungar guide in the traditional hunting grounds of our national park.’
