Nature Group Friday!

We’re meeting at The Castle Playground in Commonwealth Park (north of Nerang Pond on the northern side of LBG). There is Parking off Commonwealth Ave near Stage 88, you can use parking between Boundless and the Castle playground off Kings Ave and I have been told there is a closer parking lot off Parkes Way when going west, before the large roundabout (but I’ve yet to use it myself so can’t actually help with that).

We’ll be getting together from 10 am to enjoy the predicted Sunny weather. Bring along a picnic blanket, food and drinks for yourself and come and hang out while the children enjoy some connection time outdoors. While I’ve put 1pm as the end time, but it’s really very flexible depending on individual family desires.

If you need any assistance finding us, please feel free to call me, Taryn, 0413 678 730.

Welcome back to CHEC Nature group, just in time for the last meeting in Term 2!  We’ll be outside and keeping socially distant while hopefully enjoying a clear but cool day.

We’ll gather at the Arboretum Himalayan Cedars again this week, at the BBQ area, starting at 10:30.  Parking is free; bathrooms are on the way down the hill to the picnic area.  Bring water, food, outdoor play equipment, and the usual.

It will be great to see everyone again!  Text Rebecca at 0474545621 if you have any problem finding us.

CHEC Nature Group Friday 27 March

Join us for the last nature group of Term 1! 

We’ll be at Goorooyarroo Nature reserve in NE Canberra – parking is off southbound Horse Park Drive just north of the Federal Highway offramp.  There’s a short walking trail to the eucalyptus grove we’ve visited before to sit, explore, and build cubby houses.  Keep an eye on the weather for appropriate gear selection.   See you there!



CHEC Nature Group Friday 3/13

Come along to Uriarra East Reserve on Friday for this week’s nature group, from 10:30/11 on!   Carpark and toilets right nearby.  There’s a large grassy area for sports or free play, the river is there for splashing/wading, and plenty to explore.  There are toilet/picnic areas and mobile reception as well!  Highs in mid-20s and sunny on Friday so expect a beautiful day.  Bring the usual picnic/sun gear/play gear/change of clothes if you want them.  



CHEC Meet-up and Teens' Bible Study

Hi CHEC families

Friday 6th March we are meeting up at Downer Community Centre at 1.30 pm until 3.00. Alpha Bravo is running for the teens in the East Room and there is free play time for the younger children. 

We would love to hear your stories about the conference, come along and enjoy the fellowship and maybe the rain?

CHEC Nature Group – Cotter Bend

Good morning!

Join us on Friday for the next CHEC nature group.  We’ll enjoy the last of summer at Cotter Bend (river access with a wide pool and sandy beach, as well as nice grass!)   Plan to bring swimmers for splashing, towels, clothing change, and camp chairs if you’d like as well as the usual sun and picnic gear. 

We’ll park by the toilet block that’s on Google maps and the pdf below, so we’re all in the same spot.  If you cross the river and get to Cotter Avenue you’ve gone too far!

Hope to see you there!  Cell service is spotty at the river, FYI.


CHEC Nature Group

Come along to the first CHEC nature group of 2020!

We will be meeting at the Himalayan Cedar Forest at the National Arboretum.  There’s a free carpark at the top of the forest (take your second right on entering the Arborteum space, it’s signed).  We’ll meet at the picnic tables and perhaps take some exploratory walks from there.   We can also discuss where we’d like to explore over the coming term.

For anybody coming along for the first time, nature group is a very casual fortnightly get-together to expose our kids to a variety of natural settings in the area and let them be wild for a bit.  Bring along a picnic lunch, and the usual outdoor supplies (water, hats/sunscreen, perhaps gumboots/waterproof liners for Friday as the weather dictates).  NB: there are toilets at the Cedar Forest.

Hope to see you all there; please call Rebecca at 0474545621 if you need anything!
