Getting outdoors in Yarra Ranges
Getting outdoors has many benefits for children and families – including getting active and moving the body; stepping away from technology and practicing mindfulness; and connecting to and feeling part of the rhythms and energies of nature.
Studies show that regular direct access to nature can: increase self-esteem and resilience against stress and adversity, improve concentration, learning, creativity, cognitive development, cooperation, flexibility and self-awareness.
In the Yarra Ranges we have access to many beautiful natural places and playspaces. Below you’ll find information on playspaces and reserves, and inspiration to get your family thinking about how you can connect together outdoors.
