Increase Outdoor Time

Strengthen Bonds between Children & Caregivers

Foster a Strong Connection to the Environment

Develop Independence

Join Tomaree Coastal Adventures for a 2hr Nature Play session in Tomaree National Park. 

These sessions are designed to increase outdoor time, strengthen bonds between children and caregivers, create and foster a strong connection to the environment and develop children’s independence.

Nature Play is designed for children 3 years old – school age but younger siblings are also welcome.

Sessions will be different each week but will generally have some of the following activities:

  • Nature art and craft
  • Shelter building
  • Fire building and cooking
  • Sand sliding (bums/feet/cardboard)
  • Rock pool exploration
  • Bush walks
  • Bug hunting
  • Mud play

Nature Play will continue unless schools close, or as further information comes to hand, at which time we will review our status. 

To allow our sessions to continue we need to work together in partnership, I understand that our community will be in need of support and connection over the coming weeks, however as always, the safety of our staff, our families and our Tomaree Coastal Adventures community will remain our first priority.

In an effort to ensure the safety of our Tomaree Costal Adventures community and our staff, we will be implementing the following strategies:

  • We will be encouraging; good hygiene practices such as covering your coughs and sneezes with your elbow, washing your hands often with soap and water, using alcohol-based hand sanitisers; and social distancing between participants (at least 1.5m between family groups).
  • If you or any member of your family/friends (that you live with or who you have had recent close contact with) has any sign of illness we ask that you DO NOT attend our classes until the exclusion period for the relevant illness has passed (see NSW Health guidelines). As this request is being put in place to protect the health of all our families, anyone who ignores this request will be required to leave, will not be allowed to return to our classes and any payment made will be forfeited.
  • Soap and water will be provided so participants can clean their hands on arrival and departure. Alcohol based hand sanitizer will be available for use after toileting, and before & after eating.
  • Please make sure to bring your own snacks and water, and please do not share these with anyone else.
  • We will be aiming to keep distance between participants (family groups) – think of these sessions as a chance to get outside and explore our amazing surroundings, (rather than a social outing – of course there will be a social aspect but with physical distancing in practice).
  • Due to the high ‘touch based’ nature of close group type activities, we will no longer be doing group craft or projects.

We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming sessions. Thank you all for your understanding, cooperation & support in this difficult time ❤️

Locations change each week to introduce you to different areas of the park and reduce our impact on the environment.  This is also for group safety – we operate in public spaces so cannot have the area exclusively.

Session locations will be sent out weekly to those who have pre-booked. For last minute and drop in bookings please call for the weekly location.

  • Healthy snacks and water – we are an environmentally conscious business and discourage the use of single use plastic water bottles, and plastic wrapped food. We love to see nude food and resuable water bottles.

  • Grippy, enclosed shoes
  • Spare clothes, nappies etc
  • In wet weather – gumboots, rain wear and warm clothing (not cotton)

  • All rubbish you bring in, you will need to take home with you.  
  • Most locations are NOT (normally) pram friendly – 4WD prams may make it. We recommend the use of baby carriers and backpacks for supplies.
Caregiver Ratios 
This is a facilitated activity. Your guide is there to show you and your children how to connect with and enjoy nature. They will explain safety procedures but YOU are responsible for watching your children and enforcing the safety guidelines. Due to this we will enforce a maximum ratio of 1 adult caregiver to 3 children – including infants. If you turn up with a higher child to adult ratio and no other attending adult is prepared to make up the difference you will be TURNED AWAY with NO REFUND. This is for your child’s safety. 
 
Weather
We love ALL weather – so dress accordingly! Sessions will only be cancelled in the case of relevant weather warnings, extreme heat events and unsafe fire conditions. 
 
Toilets
There are usually no toilets available at Nature Play sites. You will need to utilise outdoor toileting practices during Nature Play – we will cover this in our briefings.

Please review our terms and conditions. This covers our Booking Conditions (payments, cancellations, photos release, minors, minimum numbers, special requirements, removal from tours) and Risk Warning & Liability Waiver.
