EVENT DETAILS

Nature Play Forest Festival

Updated: Apr 26

The Nature Play Forest Festival held at Rocky Creek Hut in Kuitpo Forest and hosted by Nature Play SA welcomed a amazing amount of families with a total of 1,837 tickets sold over the 2 day event. The early morning showers were not enough to dampen spirits with mother nature providing beautiful weather in the mid 20s over both days with a slight breeze to keep everyone comfy throughout the day.


Designed for children from 0 - 12 with all stations supported by Nature Play SA staff everyone young and old was able to participate in the activities. A special shout out to Uncle Tamaru for his Aboriginal activities and education bring a great understanding of Aboriginal culture that could be understood by everyone involved.


Some of the activities included this year were:-

  • Nature mask and crown making

  • Kite flying

  • Aboriginal activities

  • Dancing and dress ups

  • Nature Potions and tinkering

  • Bee hotel crafting

  • Bush Yoga

  • Geocaching

  • Exploring

  • Wild cubby building

  • Picnicking and many other activities to choose from.

Scrapes and bumps were shown off proudly with no major mishaps on either of the days. I even had a few visitors who just wanted to see in the first aid tent so I got to do a bit of a show and tell as well. :D


Some of the benefits on activities such as this include:

  • Promoting physical activity

  • Providing multi-sensory experiences

  • Supporting overall wellbeing and mental health

  • Raising awareness of Aboriginal culture

  • Providing opportunities for children and families to connect with nature

  • Encouraging a fun, safe, and friendly atmosphere

A fantastic 2 days was had by all with some wonderful feedback from both participants and staff. I hope to see you all again.
