Learning about fire in the bush

Every summer our urban bushland and the animals that live there are threatened by fires. This interactive story about a real bushfire in Kings Park is told through the eyes of Tawny Frogmouth.

Children learn about the effects of fire on our unique banksia woodland ecosystem with a focus on how the plants and animals cope after fire. The program ends with a visit from a Kings Park firefighter. 

'The highlight was seeing the children so engaged with nature.' - Kindergarten Teacher
