Forest Therapy Walk
Celebrate National Eucalyptus Day by exploring these wonderful trees with all of your senses.
A Forest Therapy guide helps people to slow down, become present in their body and the environment. We walk slowly and invite participants to take part in activities designed to engage all the senses and enhance the healing qualities of nature.
This walk will focus on the exploration of various species of Eucalyptus trees and wet eucalypt forest. It will include stretching and breathing exercises, exploring the details of textures and colours, honey sampling and observation of the ecology of eucalypt forests.
Shinrin Yoku or Forest Therapy, originated in Japan as a public health practice and research shows it can help to reduce stress, improve mental health and benefit immune function. Guide Elspeth Brock is a trained horticulturist and certified Forest Therapy Guide with the International Nature and Forest Therapy Alliance (INFTA).
The ticket price includes entry into the Tasmanian Arboretum’ s collection of trees from around the world, lakes and nature trail along the pristine Don River. This walk has been made possible by funding from Eucalypt Australia.
