    We absolutely loved going along to this FREE monthly outdoor storytime (when my boys were preschoolers). Things have changed a little due to covid, including that you now need to book online.

    Here is how Bush School Storytime ran when we attended. It starts at 10am with a nature craft and discovery activity.

    Then there’s songs and stories and finally cuddles with Poppy the Possum at about 11am.

    The Bush School Storytime is run by Cumberland Council’s Children’s Services Team. And there are now two sessions a month – 1st and 3rd Mondays from 10am to 11am at Central Gardens Nature Reserve in Merrylands.

    Finding Bush School Storytime with Poppy the Possum

    It’s best to park on the Paton Street side of Central Gardens Reserve in Merrylands. The Bush School is near the tennis courts, next to the large, shaded playground.

    After the Bush School Storytime, we love visiting the native animals, swapping a book in the street library, checking out the waterfall and play in the two playgrounds.
