Do you want to get the kids out among nature? Check out these fantastic nature based playgrounds in Perth.

It’s no secret that Perth has some absolutely fantastic playgrounds, with awesome themes, crazy play equipment such as robot heads and shipwrecks, plus flying foxes, giant climbing towers and even a large ‘hamster wheel’ (yep.) But what about our unsung heroes – the nature-based playgrounds? At these play spaces, it’s all about getting back to nature, minimalism and just plain old getting dirty. Here’s where you will find some of the best nature based playgrounds in Perth.



Russell Brown Adventure Park, Mosman Park
McCabe Street, Mosman Park (Access and parking via Mosman Park Tennis Club)

Perth Crochet Club will host two very special kids crochet classes during the winter holidays that are perfect for children who would love to learn a new hobby.

The Russell Brown Adventure Park is located on the banks of the Swan River in Mosman Park and features logs, rocks, ropes, boulders and creeks. The kids can build a tepee, try catching tadpoles or just get plain old dirty. There is no traditional, plastic play equipment, although there is a small playground suitable for younger children at the bottom of the carpark. You can read more here.

Rio Tinto Naturescape, Kings Park
May Drive, Kings Park (enter via Saw Avenue)
Opens Tuesday to Sunday 9:30am to 4pm (closed Monday and all of February)

This is one playground where the kids can run wild in nature...but you’ll have to keep a close watch! Along with rocks, billabongs and trees, there are two giant walkways to explore.... You can read the Perth Mums Group review here.

Located right outside Optus Stadium, the Chevron Parklands has six distinct play areas, some of which are primarily nature based and includes an area for building teepees with sticks, plus lots of rocks, log steps and scrubland. There is also a large tower play structure, ‘numbat burrows’ and rope play, plus an area just for younger children. You can read more about Chevron Parkland here.

Webber Reserve, Willagee
30 Hodge Street, Willagee

While it’s only a small play space, Webber Reserve has a fantastic nature-based playground with lots of logs, trees and ropes to navigate. It’s set over a steep hill and makes use of the tree roots in the area, so keep an eye on the little ones who are just learning to walk. 2 Greenfingers Café is just over the road, which is a bonus for coffee and raw food lovers. You can read all about Webber Reserve and the nearby 2 Greenfingers Cafe here.

Joe Saunders Park, Champion Lakes
Barrington Avenue, Champion Lakes

Joe Saunders Park has a dedicated nature play area with stone steps, logs and bushes, plus a small playground with play equipment – including a play kitchen!

Mills Park, Beckenham
Brixton Street, Beckenham

Mills Park in Beckenham has an awesome nature play space that is set against a bushland backdrop and features logs, ropes and a unique stone ‘slide’ – it even has a flying fox! Okay, so not exactly natural, but it’s a lot of fun! Read the full review here.
