Partnering with Nature Play QLD

Nature Play QLD’s mission is to work innovatively and collaboratively to make nature play an integral part of childhood. The secret to successfully achieving this mission has been, and always will be through respectful, reciprocal partnerships, collaboration, sharing resources and ideas and good communication with other like-minded organisations, companies and individuals.

The commitment of organisations and individuals to sit on Nature Play QLD’s Advisory Committee has been a major achievement in partnering to steer this relatively new organisation in the right direction.

We would like to continue partnering with like-minded people to keep realising our mission and help realise others’ goals and missions as well.

Reciprocal partnerships and collaboration can mean many things but we will always respect the needs and purpose of our partners and together achieve great things.

Reciprocal Partnership Opportunities

We are currently looking for Outdoor Recreation and Outdoor Education providers to partner with on our Outdoor Recreation Pathways Project. We also partner with environmental groups who are interested in creating resources for a growing green web resource for schools.
If you or your organisation are interested in partnering or collaborating with Nature Play QLD, either on a long term basis or on a specific projects, we would love to hear more about what you do and how you’re making QLD a better place for our youngest citizens.
You can contact our Partnerships and Program Manager, Angela Wright, on 0488 171 383 or at
