I’m not really sure when I first noticed the sign on Goodwood Road pointing to Russo Nature Park but recently I remembered it and decided it was a time we go see what was there.
We packed our Wide Bay Kids up for the day and headed off. This park is located 7 km north of Childers and 20 minutes south of Bundaberg off Goodwood Road…..and what a surprise find it was!
Can I just say we had nothing but whinging and whining before we left home on this adventure. We took 3 kids, 11, 8, and 7 to explore the park, all very resistant at leaving home……to our delight this all this changed as soon as we entered the park!
Being 2 girls who grew up on a farm, and who often jumped the fence and headed into the bush on an adventure we could not believe our kids had never been walking in the bush! How could this be?
As we entered the park each of the kids grabbed a stick. They made a staff, bow and arrow and a gun. The complaining stopped and we heard things like:
It was heart warming to see them jump in and embrace what was in front of them.
