Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park is a place for children to connect with nature. It is an environmental learning and discovery facility set in a fairly fragile environment, which expects respectful behaviour of it’s visitors.
This area is not a playground or picnic area. It has been designed to retain as much of its natural bush setting as possible. It is a place to explore, climb rocks and ropes, wade through creeks, build cubbies and get dirty: traditional kids’ fun! Enjoy the view from the bridge and search for dragonflies and tadpoles.
Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park covers 60,000 square metres and incorporates a series of unique zones including hidden thickets, a creek, lookouts, a cubby building area, upside-down trees and a wetland. These areas are connected by meandering paths, boardwalks and bridges which offer a feeling of immersion in the bush. A 7m high tree-hide towers over the wetland, while a smaller tree hide provides a less challenging climb for young visitors.
The Tangle is a secluded and spooky zone of ‘upside-down trees’ which are connected by a web of climbing ropes. The ropes enable children to manoeuvre from tree to tree and can be adjusted to vary the level of challenge.
