National Arboretum Himalayan Cedar Forest

If you wander down the hill from the Himalayan Cedar Forest bbq and picnic area you’ll discover an enchanted forest perfect for making fairy houses and searching for woodland folk. Tall cedar trees provide secret shady picnic spots, plenty of sticks on the ground can be crafted into fairy houses to entrance future visitors, or used in make believe campfires. (No real fires please!) Spot birds and kangaroos. Take some clay or play dough along and plastic googly eyes and add sticks and twigs and feathers to make bush creatures. Respect the forest and only collect fallen sticks.
