Welcome to Nature Play Week
Nature Play Week 2019 runs from April 17-28 with lots of wonderful events!
Nature Play week encourages parents and kids (and people of all ages) to take a break from screens and spend time playing outside in nature. Now in its sixth year, Nature Play Week is part of Premier’s Active April campaign.
With over a hundred events and counting, there is something for everyone. Have a look at the map below to find events near you or have a look at our calendar.
Join us for our 2019 Nature Play Launch
Proudly presented by the Kids in Nature Network (KINN) in partnership with the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, the theme of this year’s launch is focused on Children’s voices and ensuring an ongoing dialogue around conservation, sustainability and the importance of nature for all.
Formal proceedings will then open up to free play and activities for children to enjoy.
Program highlights include:
- Presentations by young champions for nature
- Designated Quiet Space on the Gathering Lawn for families with children on the Autism spectrum.
- Plenty of activities for kids, including building a shelter using natural materials, playing in the autumn leaves and boat making.
Formal Launch: 9.30-10 am Wednesday April 17th 2019, 9:30am -10 am
Drop in anytime for Nature Play activities 10-1pm
