Australia’s National Park Service has introduced a backpack that will allow young children to hike in the national park in the same way as adults.

The backpack features a mesh front and back that can be folded down for sleeping or a child to sit on it.
The child can be strapped on or in a backpack to make the backpack a comfortable sleeping bag.
“This is a very unique backpack, and it will help children get out of the house and get into nature,” National Park ranger, Nick Dickson, said.
The backpack will be launched on Sunday in the National Park’s Tervana and Grafton Valley area and will be available for pre-order from September 28. “
The backpack can also be used for hiking on a hike and it’s good for walking or exploring.”

The park ranger said the backpack would be a great option for children who may have limited physical abilities.
“It’s a great idea to offer a backpack for kids who may not be able carry a backpack or have a disability,” he said.
A number of backpack companies were working on a variety of different types of backpack products, including a backpacking backpack for older children.
The backpack is not designed for use by children who have disabilities, including those with cerebral palsy, and may not fit the needs for children with limited physical capabilities.
Mr Dickson said while there were many backpack products available, the backpack was unique because it had a mesh back, allowing the backpack to be folded over for sleeping.
It is not known how long the backpack will last, but Mr Dickson hopes the backpack could be in use for a long time.
In 2016, the Federal Government announced the National Hiking Trails Program would be expanded to include the national parks and remote areas.
