About the initiative to create Nature Play QLD Gold Coast Passport
The Gold Coast Nature Passport is a fun and interactive way for children to explore the Gold Coast’s natural environment. Missions have been designed to be fun, while being educational and developing children’s creative abilities. It also takes into consideration access to family-friendly facilities. The Gold Coast Nature Play Passport is a free program, supported by a range of free and/or low cost activities for children to participate in at Passport sites. Gold Coast Nature Passport is an opportunity to increase the time children spend in unstructured play outdoors. It promotes health benefits, including cognitive, social and emotional development, and it builds resilience and creativity. Programs such as Nature Play provide a crucial role in developing environmental awareness and stewardship in later life.
