Zippy Dragonfly's Kings Park Adventures program coverFamily friendly fun for little nature lovers aged 3 – 5 years!

Join Zippy Dragonfly and his bushland friends on a fun, early learning adventure at Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park.

Each week, during the 45-minute session, children make new discoveries about our amazing natural environment. They will get hands-on with nature-based activities and meet loveable characters such as Kulbardi Magpie and Yorna Bobtail.

This eight-week program includes gentle messages about our environment, culture and conservation and incorporates pre-school skills identified in the Early Years Learning Framework.

New stories and nature-based activities are introduced each term, to reflect the changing seasons and keep children engaged throughout the year.

Your little one will receive a ‘Zippy Zoomer’ participation certificate at the end of the term to recognise their learning achievement.

'Absolutely loved this nature play group! Especially one that involves Noongar culture. Can't thank you guys enough for this term!' - Parent, Zippy's Kings Park Adventures
