The WA Parks Foundation’s popular Spring into Parks campaign is back with treks, tours, events and activities for everyone! Connect with Western Australia's spectacular parks and natural areas to enjoy the health and wellness benefits that come from spending time outside.

Running from September until November, the Spring into Parks campaign features over 350 activities and includes a Memorable Moments in Nature Photographic Competition in October with a whole host of prizes. Snap a photo while out and about for a chance to win big, from RAC Parks & Resorts, the Matagarup Zip and Climb, Camera Electronic, Two Feet and a Heartbeat, Mindful in Nature, and Naturally WA - Parks and Wildlife Services.
