Mud World Cancelled

Due to the severity of the drought conditions in QLD we have decided, with heavy hearts, to cancel this year’s Mud World event which was going to take place on October 5 and 6 at Samford, Brisbane.

All ticket purchases, including purchasing fees, will be refunded and visible on your statement within 5 – 10 days.

This was not a decision taken lightly, but morally we could not move forward with a water based event given the current conditions around QLD.

Nature Play QLD will be making a donation to Rural Aid in recognition of the effect drought is having right now on families across QLD.

About Nature Play QLD

Nature Play QLD‘s mission is to increase the time Queensland kids spend in unstructured play outdoors and in nature. It is founded on the understanding that unstructured play outdoors – nature play – is fundamental to a full and healthy childhood.   Nature play promotes health benefits, including cognitive, social and emotional development, and it builds resilience and creativity as well.

Experiences in nature as a child also leads to environmental awareness and stewardship later in life.   Nature Play QLD is a collaborative organisation, working with partner groups to encourage the Queensland community to value nature play, and support families to prioritise it in children’s lives.

Our primary role is to advocate the nature play message and to increase access to nature play resources, events and programs for Queenslanders.
