We're bringing the outside in! Pay a visit to our indoor forest and learn about the wonderful natural world through hands-on science activities. Thanks to the Otago Regional Council ECO Fund for making this project possible.


We're bringing the outside in! Pay a visit to our indoor forest at the Meridian Mall and learn about the wonderful natural world through hands-on science activities. Each day, different organisations will be on hand to share their science with you. Plant a tree, solve a kiwi mystery, become a micro-investigator and learn about bugs, birds, water, healthy homes, transportation, marine ecosystems and more! The Outside Inside Forest will offer a different experience each day so drop in a couple of times across the week to see it all.

This event is located on the lower level of the Meridian Mall near the food court and the vaccination centre, in the store next door to The Athlete's Foot.

The Outside Inside Forest is brought to you by the Science Festival with thanks to funding from the Otago Regional Council' ECO Fund, in cooperation with the Meridian Mall, Orokonui Ecosanctuary, the Dunedin City Council and Ribbonwood Nurseries.
