Community is at the heart of Big Scrub Nature Play, and we deeply care about the health and wellness of all of our families.

We are taking proactive measures to support the wider community during the COVID-19 outbreak and are following the World Health Organization (WHO) guidance on social distancing to mitigate the spread of the virus and protect the community as a whole.

Effective from March 23, 2020 we will pause all playgroups and forest school sessions. School holidays sessions have also been cancelled. We will continue to monitor guidance and will revisit these adjustments if/as necessary.​


But you know what? Time in nature has not been cancelled. And if you have your little ones at home with you, you might need some inspiration. We'd like to help! Check out these easy DIY activities or follow us on Facebook or Instagram for more ideas.

Probably the best sensory play material, water offers endless opportunities for play and discovery!


This week we will focus on movement and balance by creating a fun and easy obstacle course.


Learn how to attract beautiful butterflies to your garden in no time.
