Nature Based Play is established as a ‘bespoke’ designer and builder of nature play projects in Australia (WA focussed)
that serves the needs of children

This vision is underpinned by our 2 core commitments:

1. Natural Innovative Design

2. Childhood Development



Our philosophy at Nature Based Play is to provide quality designed Nature Spaces for communities that ‘reflect and enhance’:

– The Natural Environment
– Local Community Aspirations
– our Sustainability Ethos in delivering projects.

The philosophy behind all Nature Based Play projects is simple: We believe people of all ages enjoy ‘being in’ and ‘playing in’ artfully designed and constructed, nature-based environments. Such environments encourage us to both interact with and manipulate the space, whilst stimulating and engaging our imagination and senses.


Striving for excellence and to be leaders in our field.
Nature Based Play seeks to constantly improve our understanding.

– Exploring the ways which the natural environment benefits children.
– How can we most authentically recreate those experiences?

Nature Play is a fast growing and important movement, with hugely positive benefits to kids, schools, and communities.
For us to create spaces which best achieve these benefits, we continue to explore and develop our own knowledge base.


We are a craft based design and build company with over 20 years’ experience in creating Nature Based Play environments. Our permanent construction team works from our warehouse office in O’Connor, where we manufacture and store our Nature Based Play handcrafted pieces and materials.
At NBP we are a passionately experienced and highly skilled staff, all contributing to provide quality products and friendly service. We pride ourselves on being a community minded company with a strong commitment to sustainability and children’s wellbeing.

The Nature Based Play Team



One of the greatest gifts that Nature Based Play hopes to give children is that deep connection to nature, its processes and its elements. This sense of wonder and awe toward Nature leads naturally to policies and practices that seek out Ecological Sustainable Futures.
NBP’s Sustainability Policies seek to:
  • reduce a projects carbon footprint where possible
  • use materials from known sustainable sources
  • use locally available materials where possible
  • use recycled materials where possible
  • involve communities in the process
  • enhancing site biodiversity where possible

Nature Based Play believes that, especially in the context of Nature Play, there is much to be gained from pursuing a deeper understanding of the cultural, spiritual and educational practices of First Nations peoples.

Our offices and workshop are located on Whadjuk Noongar Boodjar, though our work takes us all across the State. As such we would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work throughout Western Australia.
