Free nature passport for kids

NaturallyGC passport

We have partnered with Play Queensland to develop a Gold Coast Nature Passport. This is a fun, low-cost and interactive way for parents and children to explore our natural environment.

Passport missions

Children are given the opportunity to venture across the Gold Coast on 11 missions ranging from Gainsborough Environmental Reserve in Pimpama to Bochow Park in Numinbah Valley and Tugun Hill Conservation Area in Tugun.

The 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. They also take into consideration access to family-friendly facilities. The passport has 'mission' pages, stickers, suggestions on great places to go and things to do outdoors. There's also 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.
