What is MUD WORLD?
Mud World is hitting the road and we are coming to Mackay Queensland.
Mountains of dirt, heaps of fun! The two day event dedicated to getting your kids grubby and grimy!
Mud squelching through the toes, splattering the clothes and no one objects. Could there be a better feeling? Children making mud pies, jumping in mud, swimming in mud, getting mudded all over. The more the better. Even those who like to be squeaky clean will give into mud’s temptation. Because that’s the fun of it – mud can be washed off, but the memories will stay forever.
This great Mud World experience is a two-day festival for kids with a choice of free-range MUD play activities. There are 5 Realms within MUD WORLD for kids to explore: Muddy Monsterland, Village of Mud, Mud Mania, Mud Slide and The Great Muddy Mountain Range.
Become a MUDDLING (also know as a citizen of MUD WORLD) and get grubby with us in the Mountains of Mud. It will be HEAPS of FUN.
MUD WORLD is a Nature Play QLD's fundraising event run in partnership with the Queensland Government.
Nature Play QLD is a collaborative non-for-profit organisation, working with partner groups to encourage the Queensland community to value nature play, and support families to prioritise it in children’s lives. More information HERE.

Dirt and Mud disclaimer
By purchasing a ticket, you understand that this is a ‘dirty play’ activities festival for children. Our aim is to give you the best experience possible by free play with minimal structure and maximum fun as a family. This is a fun family event catered to children aged 0 – 14yrs, with the focus on the benefits of unstructured play activities. Nature Play QLD has a philosophy that mud activities help a child to explore and grow through the freedom of play with the help of their peers.
Mud has been a source of joy, intrigue and fun for children for centuries. This event is seeking to inspire future generations to get back into the grime, grit and good fun of mud play. Mud play engages all the senses, and has many physical, psychological, and emotional benefits for children. It helps them build a connection with nature, regulate their moods, aids in reducing stress and anxiety, and provides exposure to friendly soil bacteria helping to build a stronger more robust immunity to sickness.
