Nature Play WA

Making unstructured, outdoor, play a normal part of every WA child’s life.

It’s February, and Nature Play WA's offices are on Whadjuk Noongar Country, so Bunuru is rolling in! ☀️

Bunuru is one of the six Noongar seasons (bonar). Occurring across February and March, Bunuru is also known as Second Summer, the season of adolescence and the hottest part of the year! With little (or no) rain, and with hot easterly morning winds changing to cooling sea breezes, it’s a good time of year to spend by the beach and on rivers.

Bunuru is also the time of white flowers - with many white flowering gums blooming now, making a spectacular display during the season’s bright sunlit days. Have you seen them in bloom?

Picnics are a fantastic way to reconnect with family and friends while enjoying all the physical and mental health benefits of the outdoors - and lucky for us, Western Australia is a picnicker’s dream. With our warm weather, huge blue skies, and so much outdoor space, the biggest challenge is picking between great spots! 

To help you choose your perfect picnic spot, we've created a resource featuring five great locations for a day of food, play, and generally having a good time in nature. Click the link in our bio to check out our Top 5 Picnic and Play Spots in Perth and Peel!

Muddy Hands was held on Saturday 19 November with over 3,000 attendees. Families enjoyed mud pits, sporting activities, hands-on art workshops, interactive stage shows and more!

This year’s event was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate all things nature play – something we haven’t been able to do at Kent Street Weir for quite some time. 

Read our latest blog featuring photo galleries (link in bio) to discover the fun we had!
