Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park wins big

Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park has won the Chevron Science Engagement Initiative of the Year at the 2018 Premier’s Science Awards. This nature play area has quickly become a Perth family favourite, delighting adults and children alike. Each year, around 80,000 visitors and over 20,000 students enjoy exploring and learning amongst the beautiful bushland of the park.

The award recognises the success of Kings Park Education in engaging and teaching students from kindergarten to high school about the natural world, outdoors, in ‘living classrooms’. Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park gives kids of all ages the opportunity to discover WA’s unique biodiversity, learn traditional Nyoongar knowledge and be inspired to become the future custodians of our natural environment.
