Travelbugs Mobile Mini-beasts commenced operations in 2002 (over 18 years ago!) and is a fun, hands-on mobile education service that travels all over NSW, the ACT and beyond, educating people of all ages about the benefits and wonders of invertebrates or ‘mini-beasts’ (insects, spiders, snails, millipedes etc) within our environment. Every workshop or exhibition includes a hands-on mini-beast experience not to be forgotten! Live mini-beasts featured include a selection of large and colourful stick insects, cockroaches, grasshoppers, beetles, preying mantis, spiders, scorpions, snails, centipedes, millipedes and more. We also now offer live interactive butterfly experiences and BugZoom sessions LIVE from our Bug Lab.
Travelbugs Mobile Mini-beasts also offers services to artists and the media and has featured on several popular television programs in Australia such as Creature Features, Gardening Australia, Playschool, Burke’s Backyard, Playschool Art Time, Sunrise and Better Homes & Gardens. Our minibeasts have also been featured at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney and in Krash and Vogue Magazines!
All workshop presenters have undergone Working With Children Checks and are Fully Vaccinated Against Covid19. Vaccination Certificates are available upon request at time of Booking. Covidsafe Plans and General Risk Assessment & Management Plans are also available upon request at time of Booking.
