Nature-based activities in and around Perth and the south-west

Nearer to Nature provides the community with unique, enjoyable activities that help participants discover marvellous natural areas in and around Perth and the south-west. Specially designed activities are offered for schools, holiday periods and the general public.

For schools we provide excursions, incursions, professional learning and resources that meet requirements of both the Australian and West Australian Curricula.

During the school holidays, fun, hands-on activities bring kids of all ages up close and personal with our wonderful plants and animals in some very special places.

Nearer to Nature’s overall aim is to increase the community’s environmental awareness, knowledge and skills, including the related heritage of Indigenous and European cultures.

The best way to do that is by getting out into nature and having fun!
