Naturescapes have many benefits to the climate and ecosystem of Australia. However, many places across the world also have issues with water, natural biodiversity, and undesirable environments for children’s play. The naturescapes concept is applicable to many other places and is already recognised and appreciated internationally. The Playing Games · Crazy Design: 13 Classic Cases from Australia is a popular book about top playgrounds in Australia. Their Facebook page has almost 1500 followers, and they regularly post great cases of playgrounds that are particularly special. Check out their post about the Majura Primary Naturescapes below!

The Natural Playground located at a Canberra local Primary School uses natural materials such as soil mounds, wood, stones, and plants to create different terrains, as well as provide water retention.
Children are welcomed to develop their creativity and play their own games, and to experience nature throughout the canges of the 4 seasons. In this way, the ecological environment is also one of the designers of this playground.Translated from: “Playing Games · Crazy Design: 13 Classic Cases from Australia” Facebook
