Nature Play events are in very high demand. Our ticketed events for children have a history of booking out within 24 hours!
Events are a great way to engage kids in outdoor play. Nature Play QLD can support your events, whether it's from providing free Nature Play QLD materials at a small event, to co-producing a day of activities for hundreds of children at your location.
While we love to produce nature play events, Nature Play QLD is not an events organisation. Instead, we rely on partnering with local governments, schools or organisations to initiate the delivery of events for children.
Fee and service
Ideally, we love to offer events for children that are free to attend.
Every event is different, however, and with financial backing Nature Play QLD can provide:
- Nature play equipment and supplies
- Event staff
- Ticketing administration
- Create branded collateral
- Create specific nature play missions according to your event
- Complete marketing and promotions
Please note when considering fee that we are a not-for-profit organisation.
Nature Play QLD can supply free promotional material for your event as follows, so long as the purpose of the event matches our ethos:
- Nature Play Passports to An Amazing Childhood
- Licence to Play (Outdoors)
- Nature Play Stickers
- Posters – such as ’51 Things to Do Before You’re 12’ or '5 Tips to Revive Neighbourhood Nature Play in Your Community'
- Nature Play QLD Band-Aids
- Plus other Nature Play QLD information and flyers
Additional marketing collateral can be purchased for events, such as:
- Nature Play t-shirts
- Water bottles
For large events, Nature Play QLD offers the opportunity to source our much sought-after Nature Play QLD t-shirts and with your logo, or other branding for an additional fee.
For councils or very large events or organisations, it is possible to brand your own Passport to An Amazing Childhood. (There are currently two councils and one large event presently developing a branded passport.)
Please contact us to find out more about partnering with us for your next event!
Examples of recent events we have partnered to deliver include:
Mud Lark in the Park, Ipswich
In partnership with Ipswich City Council, Nature Play QLD has delivered two Mud Lark events. Both events catered to over 200 children. Nature Play QLD built a giant mud pit, mud slide, mud-stacle course and mud pie bakery in Limestone Park.
There were lots of muddy smiles on the faces of kids of all ages. Not a single screen was seen the entire day! Even the Mayor of Ipswich got in on the fun, with Councillor Paul Pisasale unleashing his inner child and enjoying the muck and mayhem with the kids.
Ipswich City Council was so happy with the event and so impressed with the outcomes of the day for their local children and families that they plan to run it twice a year, every year.
Logan Muddy Monsters
In partnership with Logan City Council, Nature Play QLD deliverd Logan Muddy Monsters. The event catered to over 200 children. Logan City Council also created a Logan Nature Play Passport, which is still in distribution, and a 'Things to do' Playlist for Logan. Nature Play QLD built a mud mountain, tug-o-war, treasure hunting, mud sculptures, mud pies, target shooting, muddy soccer, and much more...!
Feedback from Logan City Council
"On behalf of the Logan City Council team I would like to thank the Nature Play Qld team for working with Council to deliver the City of Logan’s inaugural nature play event. The day was MUDtastic and we have received very positive feedback, thus far. It was also great to get coverage on Channel 9, 7 and ABC.
Personally, I enjoyed watching the children interact with the mud and found it interesting observing how each child’s interact with the mud was different and how it changed over the course of the session. I was also very pleased to hear to that some Logan parents have held their own mud event in their backyard. One resident from Greenbank informed me that she created a mud pit in her back yard at the beginning of the year for her children and their friends to enjoy."
