Tales and Trails is an interactive semi-permanent outdoor reading experience. Each Trail features a story written and illustrated by Queensland authors as part of the Stories for Little Queenslanders, a series published by State Library of Queensland and funded the Queensland State Government. The story book pages are spread along the nature board walk and encourage reading in an outdoor setting, with the inclusion of braille for increased accessibility. This initiative was developed by Ipswich Libraries and is supported by the Ipswich Nature Centre and Nature Play Queensland. Tales and Trails has now been expanded to include other parks across the Ipswich City Council region.
