Nature Play WA was conceived on the belief that unstructured play outdoors (nature play) is fundamental to a full and healthy childhood. The organisation began as an initiative of the Western Australian Department of Sport and Recreation and was inspired by the ideas of American social commentator Richard Louv and the Children and Nature Network. This website has many good resources including things to do, places to go and free resources for families.
Nature Play SA acknowledges Traditional owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise the continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and Elders both past and present.
