Follow that Sound

Children playingThis trail winds and weaves through the dense forest and if you listen carefully, you will hear the sounds of the forest as well as the musical tones of the Multi gong, granite xylophone, windpipes, jumping sound cushions, sound rollers, dendrophone and dance chimes. Once you have found these giant instruments, play them to your hearts content leading others deep into the forest to follow your sound.

Keep following the trail and you will eventually reach the bell tower, which creates more random noises; squeaks, whistles and jingles. There are balance logs and ditches to entice our more adventurous visitors and a wobble dish or two to have a wobble in.
