We have so many exciting and engaging outdoor spaces for our children to explore and outdoor play is very popular at NT Explorers.  Many activities and resources are available for the children to enjoy in our outdoors spaces.

Some of these outside areas are:


  • Natural grass playgrounds

  • Paved areas for riding bikes, scooters, etc

  • Digging and mud patches

  • Sand pits

  • Mud kitchens

  • Fairy and dinosaur gardens

  • Water play areas

  • Timber stage

  • Outdoor classroom/activity area

  • Large verandahs

  • Large timber cubby house with deck


We have extensive permanent patio covers, shade sails and umbrellas throughout our outdoor areas as well as lovely shady trees.  During our warmer months the children enjoy water play very regularly and this is very popular with the children and educators!


We encourage children to respect their natural environment and inspire them to be “keepers of the planet”.   Educators and children work together on garden and outdoor projects and development ideas.


Our grass and gardens are maintained regularly and checked for hazards prior to the centre opening each day.  These hazard checks are also completed throughout the day before the children enter the outdoors.
