Going on a bear hunt

We're going on a bear hunt! We're going to catch a big one! So the popular children's story goes.

Council is encouraging everyone to get on board and join in on the great bear hunt for teddy bears across Corangamite!

People all around the world have been putting teddy bears and other soft toys in windows and trees and on balconies, encouraging children to get outdoors for a walk with their parents while hunting for bears.

The hunt is inspired by the children’s book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury, in which the characters sing: “We’re going on a bear hunt, we’re going to catch a big one - what a beautiful day, we’re not scared.’’ 
The initiative has been widely shared on community Facebook pages across Australia, mirroring similar bear hunts right across the world.

Get in the spirit of adventure and place a Teddy Bear in your window or fence for kids to spot as they walk their blocks. A great initiative to keep the kids entertained and creating a sense of community and connectedness.
