Creek to Coast

At this time of year, local aboriginal children would look for the Parra'dowee (short-finned eels) making their way down the creeks to the coast. We will explore the creeks at the Wildflower Garden. 

Our 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 our 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.

Suited for 4-6yrs.

Benefits of Nature Play

Nature play significantly improves all aspects of early childhood development – physical, cognitive, social and emotional. Playing outdoors in nature grows resilience, self-confidence, initiative and gross-motor skills.
