City of Gold Coast’s Active & Healthy team present Nature Play these school holidays – a range of activities guaranteed to get your kids off their screens, out into nature and indulging in their love of outdoor play.


Kicking off with the FREE Roaming the Gold Coast event on Saturday 6 December, Nature Play is all about getting the kids outdoors more often so that they reap the benefits of unstructured playing, learning and being physically active in our many parks, beaches and natural playgrounds.


Whether your child is arty, sporty, quirky or just loves exploring, they’ll find something to whet their appetite for the great outdoors, with a range of activities on offer including:

  • Natural adventure series
  • Body art with nature
  • Baby seaside music, art and tales on the beach
  • Beach bingo and treasure hunts
  • Random days of fun
  • Stand up paddling and skateboarding
  • Circus workshops and more


Check out the free launch event on 6 December, for a “taste-test” of some of the activities available for three to 12 year olds these school holidays. Activity stations include a mud pie bakery, kite making, stand up paddle boarding, circus intro, cubby building, a sand obstacle race and lots more.
