St Edward's Primary School is a vibrant educational community situated on eight hectares of land, with a variety of learning spaces, play zones and environment areas. The brief for this project was to create a nature playground that maximised the existing clearings and natural features, whilst blending into the bush surrounds.

The key to this design was creating a series of interconnected play spaces that encouraged exploratory play across a variety of activities. Log steppers, timber stilt walkers and balance logs create physical challenges, while ironbark chime posts and a jungle drum offer multi-sensory music play. There’s a compact water pump for water play, as well as a sensory maze. A stage deck, storytelling chair, freestanding chalkboard and yarning circle log seats create an outdoor classroom, encouraging teachers and students to spend more time learning outdoors.

Tactile sculptures feature local wildlife including a curlew, koala, echidna and frilled neck lizard.

The playground was designed by Natura’s subsidiary brand, Play Works.
