Welcome to Bush Magic Adventures

We are an Illawarra Based Nature Play Organisation who support children, parents and schools to embark on Outdoor Education experiences using Forest schooling pedagogy

We offer a range of programs for children and families under our forest schooling pedagogy including

0-5yr playgroups
3-6yr Nature Play (drop off)
Bush School 5-14yrs
After school programs
Holiday programs
Family camps
Adult nature immersion

This allows them to develop their interests and abilities through practical hands on experiences.

In the bush, magic happens

Some important aspects of the Forest school philosophy are that all participants are viewed as equally unique and valuable, 


Competent to explore and discover, entitled to face appropriate risks and challenges


Entitled to experience regular success, to develop positive relationships with themselves and others


Seek intrinsic motivation and entitled to choose, initiate and drive their own learning process and development.

about us

Simone and Katrina are the co-founders of Bush Magic Adventures.

We launched Bush Magic Adventures in 2022 as a drop off nature play program for the growing local home-schooling families. With our delivery of unstructured time in nature, and forest schooling programs, our offerings quickly grew.

We now have multiple sites and 10 different programs running each week, with a highly skilled team of over 20 wonderful facilitators.

We are both local to Wollongong and our plan is to continue to deliver exceptional Nature Education experiences throughout the Illawarra.
