Age groups


  1. Baby Bushwalks

    Baby Bushwalks is a weekly, Brisbane-based 'babes-in-arms' activity for parents and their young children to meet, share, get some fresh air and explore nature. It's about connection with a community and with nature, and aims to 'bring back the village'. Meeting weekly at JC Slaughter Falls picnic area in Mt Coot-tha, Brisbane, the group will explore one of the bushwalks, going at the pace of the group. There are creeks and rocks to explore, and wide open grass spaces to run around. The terrain is best suited as a 'babes-in-arms' activity, ie where children are carried in carriers and hiking backpacks or can walk on their own. Only 1km of the walking tracks are suitable for prams.
  2. Easee

    Encourage and Act for Sustainable Education and Ethics
  3. The Little Explorers Club Brisbane

    Our mission is to facilitate young children (ages 0-5) to explore the great outdoors while inevitably gaining a love for our natural surroundings and physical play. We want to grow the next generation to value conservation and to gain a love for healthy outdoor activity. Our Brisbane chapter runs a range of bush walking and outdoor play within the Brisbane and surrounds. We meet up and then allow the kids to explore at their own pace - whether we make it anywhere or not, we want them to decide how to explore. They may end up splashing in a puddle or finding cool rocks and sticks and never make it more than 500 meters from the car park. It doesn't matter, the point is for them to explore.
  4. Little Angels at FOREST HILL

    Exploring AND ADVENTURE are our aim.... if you would love to come and play in our beautiful environment and make some amazing discoveries.... come and visit us... We love to meet new friends.
  5. Bush Playgroup - Bris south and surrounds

    Hello, My daughter (now 2) and I were keen to join a bush playgroup in Brisbane and have had some wonderful times with the Bardon and Northy Street Bush Playgroups but we are keen to explore some areas a little closer to home, so we have started a bush playgroup for families on the south side of Brissy. I grew up playing in the Arnwood creek in Annerley so for starters I thought we could explore this area however also thinking of places such as Toohey Forest, Karrawatha Forest, Whites Hill Reserve, West End Community Gardens as well as exploring other forests, gardens, mountains, creeks, ponds, beaches around these parts of the woods. We are keen to meet weekly and at this point we are rotating Thursday and Friday mornings from 9:30am - 11am (ish). Bring some clothes and shoes that can get wet, hat, sunscreen, morning tea and a sense of adventure! We’ll decide on a location every week.
  6. Little Explorers

  7. Mothers in Nature Playgroup

    Meeting once a fortnight at locations which will allow our children to enjoy unstructured play outside, this is a playgroup/regular playdate for parents looking to engage with other parents who enjoy the outdoors. Each fortnight we will rotate morning and afternoon catch ups, all very friendly and casual, and locations will change from meet to meet. There is an active FB group called Mothers in Nature and you can be added to this by an existing member or by getting in contact with me - Ngaire Trigg either via FB or text. 0404101095. We will share stories, blogs and information about Nature based activities happening in the townsville area and general info and information to encourage us all to reconnect with nature and increase the time we spend with our children in the great outdoors. In the event of bad weather I will host at home or the library with nature based craft or some story time or similar. We are a friendly bunch so dont be shy - the more the merrier. Most of our children range from 6 months to 5 - hence being a (pre-school) playgroup as such , and activities and locations will be kept age appropriate and to a roughly 2 hour duration to allow for naps and attention spans, however older siblings are always welcome.
  8. Rainbow Nature Explorers

    Rainbow Nature Explorers is a nomadic, nature-based playgroup for children. Meeting in wild spaces around the Sunshine Coast, this Steiner, Reggio Emilia, influenced group follows a loose rhythm that revolves around free play and exploration in nature. Whilst unstructured nature play will dominate the session, our Rainbow Nature Explorers are invited to engage with their local landscape through play that is rewarding, risky and real. It allows them to achieve wondrous feats, marvellous creations, and epic journeys, and at other times to fall from trees, shake their confidence and head home with a gumboot full of soggy mud. There is lots of free play where the children get to learn about their environment and it’s creatures in a very natural learning way. The children are also invited to participate in weekly invitational activities that might include story time, seasonal songs and nature arts and crafts along with opportunities for: • Tree climbing • Wildlife viewing and bug searching • Bushwalking • Mudpie kitchen • Nature scavenger hunts • Jumping in puddles Unlike many traditional playgroups, this program is specifically designed to provide access and opportunity for our young children to engage in nature play. This is an all-weather group that encourages adventure and exploration to help promote imagination and self-discovery in a stimulating natural learning environment. We believe that children who play in nature day after day forge a lifetime bond and commitment to conservation and the environment, which is a fundamental value of Rainbow Nature Explorers, and one we want to pass on to our children

  14. The Rewilding Project - Project Wild Child

    Project Wild Child is a movement of woman taking their babies into the outdoors. We are undertaking the challenge of raising kids who are unplugged and connected to nature. We believe that mothers who embrace this connection have profound effect on their children, and explore what it means to pass on an inheritance of wildness. For a mother, a life outdoors brings out the best version of ourselves —more kind, more patient, more playful, more brave and a little more wise. Our children benefit by getting dirty, running, climbing trees, exploring, creating, building, designing, take risks, and diving into imagination. Our goal is to create a community that holds regular meet up for nature play, adds an element of trek training and plans for remote wilderness experiences together. Together we search for more mindful patters of adventure. You don’t have to be a professional athlete or a rugged outdoorsperson to enjoy the connection and community that will inevitably come from spending time in the wilderness.
  15. Creative Learners
