Gold Coast Nature Passport

Nature Play Passport

The City of Gold Coast, in partnership with Nature Play Queensland, have developed a Gold Coast Nature Passport - a fun, low-cost and interactive way for parents and children to explore the Gold Coast’s natural environment.

Children are given the opportunity to venture across the Gold Coast on 11 missions ranging from Gainsborough Environment Reserve in Pimpama to Bochow Park in Numinbah Valley and Tugun Hill Conservation Area in Tugun. Missions have been designed to appeal to children aged 3 to 12 years and be fun, while being educational and developing children’s creative abilities. It also takes into consideration access to family-friendly facilities. The passport has ‘mission’ pages, stickers, suggestions on great places to go and things to do outdoors and a list of 15 things every child should do before they’re 12. Parents, get your kids started today!.

Free copies of the Gold Coast Nature Passport are available at most libraries, or you can contact us as per the details below.

Missions are also available through an exciting online interface that allows kids to find a mission, and then leave the computer behind to go outside, and do it. For additional motivation, they can collect virtual points for completing each outdoor activity to build avatars and earn prizes.
