Wild Nature Play

Boshack Outback is your ultimate wild nature play ground with 300 acres of land that features a fresh water lake,  pristine bushland and the property is surrounded by Wattening Springs Nature Reserve.

In today’s society children are spending less time in nature and more time indoors on modern technology. We want to change that and at Boshack Outback, we want our children enjoying the land and playing in nature. We want them to explore, use their imagination and give them the opportunity to be free range kids!

At Boshack Outback children can explore the bush, build cubby houses, catch tadpoles and frogs, feel the mud between their toes in the lake, catch fish and look for turtles. The options are endless and children are only limited by their imagination.

Fishing the Boshack

As per Nature Play WA research has proven that children benefit from playing in natural surroundings and you may be surprised at how much of a positive effect it can have on our children.

 Benefits of Wild Nature Play

  • Children who play regularly in natural settings are sick less often. Mud, sand, water, leaves, sticks, pine cones and gum nuts can help to stimulate children’s immune system as well as their imagination.
  • Children who spend more time outside tend to be more physically active and less likely to be overweight.
  • Children who play in natural settings are more resistant to stress; have lower incidence of behavioural disorders, anxiety and depression; and have a higher measure of self-worth.
  • Children who play in natural settings play in more diverse, imaginative and creative ways and show improved language and collaboration skills. Single use, repetitive play equipment becomes boring quickly.
  • Natural, irregular and challenging spaces help kids learn to recognise, assess and negotiate risk and build confidence and competence.
  • Children who play in nature have more positive feelings about each other.
  • Bullying behaviour is greatly reduced where children have access to diverse nature-based play environments.
  • Symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder are reduced after contact with nature.
