♡ Walk The Land is an independently-run natureplay program where children have the opportunity to feel a sense of belonging with the natural world from an early age.
♡ A place where children have the spaciousness to find their own rhythms and learning dynamics.
♡ To meet with other younger minds and bodies in a pressure-off context and find regulation in their nervous systems.
♡ Values and essentials that will set them up for a grounded confident life.
♡ Welcoming the opportunity for children to feel the freedom of their own explorations of self-discovery and curiosity while being supported and guided in their arising creative interests.
♡ Nestled amongst beautiful eucalyptus and varying landscapes of flora in the Valley, a short distance from Yarra Junction, Launching Place and Healesville.

An inspiring space for a parent/bubs program in the practice of village life.
Parents come with your little ones and gather weekly to co-create a facilitated space for listening, being heard and learning new skills while your children are cared for.
Children may sit with their parent or join the other children of the natureplay village for an activity.
Get ready for a whole lot of fun during the Easter holidays.
Book in for a day and have your children nourished and cared for during the holiday rest.
Children will learn natural crafting skills,
What a gift yourself, Amber and the land are to our children. My child's spirit is truly filled by your thoughtful programs and love. Such a wonderful group in your loving arms Sam and Amber. I love getting a peek into your whimsical adventures. I always imagine walking into the space from my child's perspective and it’s just pure magic. Thank you for all your love and cherishing of our little ones! It’s my child's favourite day of the week.

Walk The Land
We acknowledge the Woi Wurrung Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation as the First Peoples of the land and waterways that we live, work and learn on. We honour their songlines, their storylines and express our respect to Wurundjeri elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty has not been ceded. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
