Let’s Peek inside the Adventure Guides!

Hi there, I’m Christina, and I researched, wrote and illustrated the Gumnut Trails Adventure Guides!

Let me share what’s inside and why families love exploring with Gumnut Trails.

Let the adventures begin! xx Christina. 


Which trails and activities are included?

Over the last 3 years, I have created 4 adventure guides all across Melbourne’s amazing beaches, parks and reserves. That’s 20 incredible trails, with 60 adventures to choose from!
Every trail is 100% unique and the adventures are designed around the history, features, wildlife, and stories of each individual park or beach.

Each trail is full of secret missions, creative hand-drawn illustrations, fun facts and adventures that your kids will love! Because when our kids are having fun, everyone is having fun.

Get ready to solve clues on a trail, go on creative scavenger hunts and citizen-science inspired missions, or have fun with nature play!

There are secret beaches, bike -riding trails, gold history trails, lush gardens, hidden islands, epic gorges, steppingstone trails and so much more!

Easy to use and fun? Tell me more!

As a parent, I know how hard it is to find time to plan and fit in fun family days out that are affordable and memorable.

That’s why the trails are all within 20 - 30kms distance of Melbourne, the adventures are creative, achievable and easy to follow.

There are also helpful tips on where to go, how long it takes, what to bring and more, to make the day run smoothly.

You simply choose your trail turn up and go! All the planning and hard work is done for you.

Your family will be OUTSIDE, exploring and having FUN without you needing to plan a thing! Exactly what weekends and family time is all about.
