Location: Yuendumu, Northern Territory

Commissioned: Design & Construct

Description: Nature Based Play was approached by Remote community Yuendumu to design and construct a Nature Playground for the Yuendumu school in Northern Territory. This project was classified as remote, with all nature play elements and items for the Nature Space transported via trucked shipping container to the site.

The NBP team pre-manufactured a lot of the play elements for the project in our factory, and installed and assembled these onsite. The NBP construction team of 3 experienced workers spent 2 weeks completing the project – staying onsite, with the assistance of the local community machinery and workers. Through some heavy rains and remote logistics, they finished the Nature Playground to design, safety and high quality level requirements.

Yuendumu is a stunning natural outback location, and the new Nature Playground blended in beautifully to the natural surroundings and added an amazing new playground amenity to the school and community. The local elders were very supportive and extremely satisfied with the final outcomes of the Nature Play for their community. The success of the project has led to another Stage in Yuendumu, with a design and construction Nature Based Play project for the Yuendumu Children and Family Centre, catering for younger ages and families.

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.
