luAt Tea, we make clothes. But we also design websites, look at financial statements, write emails, produce photo shoots, work over the phone with our factories all over the world, negotiate with our warehouse to make sure packages get shipped on time, travel the world for inspiration, draw, cut, sew, glue and strive to make learning about different cultures FUN for children.

Each season, we create a box insert that includes exciting new activities you can do at home with your little citizens. We’re really excited about our activity book for Australia and wanted to share it with you. Here, you can download, print out and share these activities with your family.

Australia’s magical rainforests and reefs stretch across the country. From the Daintree Rainforest in Queensland to the Gondwanan Rainforest near Byron Bay, Australia is home to some of the oldest rainforests in the world. The Daintree Rainforest is the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest in Australia. Along the coast of Queensland, the rainforest grows right down to the edge of the sea! The rainforest is home to 90% of Australia’s population of bats and butterflies! You can also find frogs, reptiles, birds and an amazing variety of plants and flowers. Being on the coast, the Daintree rainforest offers a rare combination of scenery, from the dense tropical rainforest covering to the white sandy beaches of the shore.
