The Nature Play programs offer weekly nature-themed activities, designed to develop curious minds and playful spirits. They involve a fun morning of play-based investigation and discovery in nature led by their experienced Environmental Education Rangers. Activities cost $20 per child with one parent/carer admitted free of charge. All activities are COVID-19 safe and bookings are essential as spaces are limited.
