Welcome to Play Australia
Our Vision For Play
A connected and healthy Australia where PLAY is a part of everyone’s daily life.
Our Play Mission
To promote the value of PLAY and support all Australians to PLAY every day.
As adults, we have the responsibility to provide PERMISSION, TIME and SPACE for our children to play freely every day, so they can make sense of the world in their own way, at their own pace.
