Boroondara Wild

Boroondara Wild is a celebration of the wonderful ways kids and their families explore nature in our community. Kids have told us they love the colours, sounds and textures of nature, and the way they feel when they spend time outdoors.  

We want to help families find opportunities to discover, create, unwind and explore right in their own backyard. So, we’ve created a passport for kids filled with ideas, fun challenges and stickers to help them get discovering! 

We also have a number of nature play events for families you can enjoy throughout autumn.
