Nature Play SA


Nature Play SA is a not-for-profit organisation that started in 2014 with start-up funding from the South Australian Government. Our vision was simple – to get more children outside playing in nature. In their backyards, local parks and wilder places, like National Parks. Our start-up funding concluded in June 2018 and we’ve worked hard toward becoming entirely self-funded.


We are proud to be recognised as a professional association within South Australia, with an annual membership program to support educators across the board.

A 12-month subscription to a Nature Play SA Educators Membership provides you with discounts on a wide range of products and services and access to member-only resources. These products and services have been specifically designed to provide a clear pathway for you and your colleagues to utilise your outdoor learning environment with confidence.

In addition, through the membership program, members will be supporting Nature Play SA to continue our role in supporting the South Australian community to engage more children in nature through outdoor learning and play.

Member benefits include:

  • 10% discount off all our professional development services such as workshops and conferences
  • 10% discount on all speaking engagements to staff and parent groups
  • 10% discount and access to special offers on all incursion and excursion programs
