The Nature Play Festival is an annual Festival for children and their families which celebrates and encourages play outdoors in nature!
The Festival is coordinated by Nature Play SA in collaboration with more than 30 wonderful event host organisations including local and state government, not-for-profits, playgroups, education sites, nature clubs, Friends Groups, libraries and more! The 2018 Nature Play Festival is proudly supported by Flinders University.
Through the Festival, Nature Play SA aims to highlight the importance of nature play for today’s generation of children and to provide opportunities for families to access nature play events and activities across SA. This year, they’re delighted to announce more than 100 nature play events are being held by host organisations across the state.
So sit back and enjoy planning your spring school holiday adventures with their online Festival guide – simply select your region, take a look at what’s on offer, and make sure you book tickets or register where required. They will keep the page updated and you can also contact host organisations with specific queries via the event information provided.
