Nature Kid program

Active learning in nature

Nature Kid is based on the survival story of an eight-year-old child, Charlie, who is washed overboard whilst sailing in the Swan River and swims to a deserted riverbank.

Kids explore weather, water, wellness and all things wild as they imagine what it would be like to be Charlie marooned on a riverbank. 

Bookings are essential and fees apply.
