Getting children and adults out and about exploring nature has never been easier! Nearer to Nature provides opportunities for families, community groups and overseas and interstate visitors to take part in fun, hands-on, activities in the natural environment.

Offering programs from diverse locations across the metropolitan area and and in the south-west and covering a variety of ecosystems, there is no better way of getting out and about in nature.

During 2018 the Nearer to Nature team will once again be bringing you a great range of activities. In addition to the popular school holiday activities, Nearer to Nature can design a program to accommodate a community group of any size or age. Your group booking will have the added flexibility of having your experience last from one hour to a whole day, or even longer.

Nearer to Nature supports the department’s initiative of connecting people with our parks.
