Discover the sights and sounds of Royal National Park with a specially designed nature play program for children under 6 years old. Investigate who or what is making the music of the bush as we explore the sights and sounds of the area. You’ll get to solve problems, get creative and make some friends!

Spending time in nature is important for a child's enrichment and growth. By introducing children to the bush at a young age, they can develop an understanding and appreciation of the natural world.

Don't forget to wear enclosed shoes, and bring a hat, drinking water, raincoat and sunscreen.
