Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park
Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park is currently currently closed for the construction of a Stage 2 development.
From 2018, visitors will be able to explore amazing new features including a new rockpool and a larger creek for paddling, a 7 metres high 'sky scramble' walkway, a rocky scarp, more climbing ropes and nets, and a new cubby zone. New outdoor teaching facilities are also being added to keep up with demand from visiting schools.
Kings Park Education is continuing to deliver its programs in other venues around Kings Park in 2017.
This super-exciting $3 million project is made possible by our partner, Rio Tinto. Rio Tinto has been a strong supporter of this world-first nature space, contributing almost $9 million to the project since it opened in 2011. Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park is a place for children to connect with nature and learn to appreciate the unique Western Australian environment. It is a place to explore, climb rocks and ropes, wade through creeks, build cubbies and get dirty.
The philosophy, background, supporters, volunteers and media.
Hands-on, inquiry-based education programs linked to the Australian curriculum.
