Growing Bigger Backyards

December 6, 2021 - January 23, 2022

Since the 1990s, the size of the Australian backyard has diminished dramatically. Quarter-acre blocks are no longer the norm. Knowing the importance of outdoor play, we now have a responsibility to our children to extend the boundaries of what we think of as our own backyard.

That’s why these school holidays we’re encouraging WA families to start Growing Bigger Backyards. We want families to “think outside the fence” in terms of defining a backyard – after all, our state is one of the biggest backyards in the world!

Each week, we’ll be sharing a new way to grow your bigger backyard, as well as some resources and activity ideas, through our social media channels. Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay updated with each week’s theme! You can also check back in on this page for more info each week, and follow the action on our Events Calendar!

We Acknowledge
Nature Play WA acknowledges the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation, as the custodians of the land where our team lives and works. We also acknowledge the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and recognise the continuing connection of Indigenous people to their land, waters, sky, culture and community. We pay our respect to all Indigenous people of this land; ancestors, elders and young ones.
