Discover Nature during Nature Play Week

Tuesday, April 18, 2023

This year Nature Play Week is back with an abundance of fun activities for kids and families to connect and play in nature.

Nature Play Week, which is held from 17-30 April, celebrates and promotes outdoor play opportunities in our beautiful natural environment, highlighting the benefits of nature as a place to enjoy, relax, play, imagine and explore.

City of Whittlesea is hosting two free family friendly activities during Nature Play Week, helping to connect families back to nature and support the development of healthy, confident and resilient children in the municipality.
