Join us outdoors where nature players roam wild, get dirty and create lasting memories of a nature-filled childhood.


Throughout the year we’re delighted to bring South Australian families a series of seasonal events in locations ranging from national parks and forests, to local reserves, natural play spaces and botanic gardens.
We like to think of our events as a jumping off point – an opportunity for you to get your bearings and grow. After all, childhood was a while ago for most of us! Designed to showcase what free play outside can look like, we hope our events give you the inspiration and confidence you need to make unstructured play in nature an everyday part of your children’s lives.
We collaborate with government and other partners to run signature events including Cubby Town, International Mud Day celebrations, the Nature Play Forest Festival, the Festival of Mud and so much more.
Keep an eye on this page and our instagram and facebook feeds for latest event releases.
Our events book out quickly so we suggest securing tickets sooner, rather than later, to avoid disappointment.

We can’t wait to nature play with you soon!
