Take it outside, stay connected in nature.

nature pact


We are all a part of nature, and nature connects us all.


It’s round two of our #NaturePact, and this year, we want you to make a pact to spend intentional time in nature. For one month, experience nature daily and make your own connection with it, as we are all a part of nature and nature connects us all.

The People and Parks Foundation is calling on everyone to make a #NaturePact, and to feel the difference in their mood, energy and wellbeing when spending time outside in fresh air.

Time spent with nature makes us healthier, happier, and better connected to what each one of us is born a part of – life on earth. So, this September, schedule some time with nature every day, grab a friend (or fur-friend!) and head outside for your daily #NaturePact.

Time with nature is always time well spent.

  • Sign up to make a #NaturePact with a family member, friend or colleague. If you’d like to share your experiences being in and noticing nature, you’ll have the chance to win some beautiful nature-based prizes from our valued partners. Stay tuned for special themes and challenges.

Did you know that getting outside to spend intentional time with nature is good for your brain and your mood? 🌾⁠
⁠
If you've been cooped up inside all day, take the time to get outside.⁠
⁠
Sit in a quiet spot, take a deep breath of fresh air, and spend some time noticing the nature around you, engaging as many of your senses as you can.⁠
⁠
Taking your nature dose can be as simple as watching the bees buzz around the neighbourhood flowers, or as involved as embarking on a multi-day hike through the mountains. Get nature to meet you where you're comfortable, and build your nature dose from there.⁠
⁠
Spending time in nature is truly one of the best ways to relieve stress and anxiety.⁠
⁠
What's your favourite way to spend time with nature?⁠

For us, Spring = picnic season! 🧺 ⁠
⁠
Planning a picnic in the great outdoors with friends and family is a great way to deepen your nature connection. How about choosing a new picnic spot - somewhere you haven't spread out the rug before, somewhere new and enticing. Catching up outside is a safe and easy way to stay connected with loved ones, and take your daily #NatureDose.⁠
⁠
Where's your favourite picnicking spot, or where's somewhere you've been dreaming of visiting? ⁠

As we wrap up #NaturePact 2021 we're reflecting on the stunning ABC TV Series #BackToNatureAU and we want to share how heartfelt congratulations with the passionate, dedicated, nature-driven people behind the series.⁠
⁠
Thank you to everyone involved in bringing the production to our screens, particularly producers @jane.threshold and @mediastockade - you made Tuesday nights throughout August and September something to look forward to 🌿 ⁠
⁠
The inspirational 8 part documentary series took us on a journey through fascinating, wondrous, and sometimes unknown, nature places in Australia.⁠
⁠
#BacktoNatureAU inspired key moments during the #NaturePact campaign - such as Forest Bathing and Rock Basking. We listened to stories and meditated on the deeply spiritual insights shared by Aboriginals from many different Countries, learning that what connects everything, and everyone, is our connection to Country. During the first week of the campaign, we encouraged you all to accept the invitation generously extended by Traditional Owners to connect to Country and start by Acknowledging Country.⁠
⁠
For those of you who haven't had the good fortune to watch the series yet, you can catch up on @abctv & iview. ⁠
⁠
So, we have one last giveaway to say thank you - a beautifully framed picture taken from the #BackToNatureAU series for our lucky winner @brunswickhippie! Congratulations, and thank you for making you #NaturePact! Please send us a DM and we can organise your gift to be sent to you!⁠

Sound on for this one! 🔉⁠
⁠
What an incredible moment with nature - Lyrebirds really are phenomenal in the way they mimic other sounds.⁠
⁠
This is a great example of how you can connect with nature as you venture through your own #NaturePact journey. ⁠
⁠
Next time you are out in nature to gain a deeper connection within that moment, try the following:⁠
⁠
🍃 Stand still or sit down⁠
🍃 Close your eyes⁠
🍃 Take 3 deeps breaths ⁠
🍃 Listen to the sounds around you⁠
🍃 List 5 things you can hear at that moment ⁠
⁠
You might be surprised by what you hear and feel!⁠

Red Earth Heart ❤️🖤⁠
⁠
Tonight on #BackToNatureAU we're in desert Country in Central Australia.⁠
⁠
Aaron, one of our hosts, is an actor and a descendant of Arrernte people of Central Australia and Arabana people in South Australia. This is his Country and where he feels a sense of belonging and revitalisation.⁠
⁠
“The rivers, the mountains, the red earth of Arrernte country, it’s a part of me."⁠
⁠
“I belong to this land, this country, this planet, this cosmos."⁠
⁠
“I’m connected to billions of stars and planets that are floating through space.” ⁠
⁠
Climb with Aaron and Holly as they ascend Alherrkentye-Trephina Gorge, a rusting quartzite rock formation. Gaze with them to the north - to Aaron’s grandmother’s country. Visit a giant ghost gum, believed to be the largest in Australia - its labyrinthine roots extending far underground. 🪨🍂🌳 ⁠
⁠
We've followed in Holly and Aaron’s footsteps throughout August and September as they've gently guided us through some of Australia's most magnificent (and sometimes hidden) landscapes.⁠
⁠
As this stunning 8-part series comes to an end (don't worry, you can always catch up on ABC iView), we reflect on the fascinating discoveries we've made about nature, and the feeling of calm and peace we've experienced while getting Back to Nature.⁠
⁠
Make your #NaturePact to spend meaningful time with nature daily 🌿 ⁠
⁠
Experience nature’s wonders, large and small with #BacktoNatureAU. Stream from 8pm tonight on ABC iview and ABC TV.⁠

Have you heard about the @atlasoflivingaustralia (the ALA)? It's a collaborative, open, digital tool bringing together data from a range of sources to build a comprehensive picture of Australia’s biodiversity! 🌳 ⁠
⁠
During Biodiversity Month, and in the final week of our #NaturePact when we're learning how to nurture native nature, use the ALA to discover Australian nature at your fingertips.⁠
⁠
Can you find some IRL examples of native nature in your local area using the ALA as your guide?⁠

Healthy sustainable ecosystems rely on environmental biodiversity.⁠
⁠
This week, during Biodiversity Month, we encourage you to Nurture Native Nature as part of your #NaturePact. As inspiration, we’re celebrating our partner project, ‘Chelsea Australian Garden’ at Olinda.⁠
⁠
We are supporting @phillip_johnson_landscapes to help deliver his award-winning vision of a stunning, diverse and highly engaging Australian native garden in the Dandenong Ranges Botanic Gardens on the outskirts of Melbourne. Inspired by his local surrounds, Phillip designed the Australian Garden, using exclusively Australian native flora, to win both Gold and Best in Show at the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show in 2013.⁠
⁠
This native garden will be recreated at twenty times the scale of the original exhibition garden and will provide an immersive showcase of Australian native plants sourced from all over the country. The Chelsea Australian Garden, Olinda will be a haven for rare and endangered Australian native plants, including:⁠
- Lagastrobus franklinii: Huon PineTasmania⁠
 - Citrus inodora: Russell River Lime⁠
- Davidsonia jerseyana: Davidson’s Plum⁠
- Wollemia nobilis: Wollemi Pine⁠
- Eucalyptus gregsoniana: WolganSnow Gum⁠
- Nematolepis wilsonii: Shiny Nematolepi⁠
- Grevillea willisii: Omeo Grevillea⁠
- Rhododendron lochiae: Australian Rhododendron⁠
⁠
The Garden will connect visitors to the unique qualities of Australian native plants 🌿 and help us learn what stunning Australian natives we can grow and nurture at home.⁠
⁠
Take a closer look at Phil’s design by clicking the link in our bio and stay connected with us to see this incredible design come to life! ⁠

Tonight on #BackToNatureAU Aaron and Holly explore the waters and banks of Dyarubbin, the Hawkesbury River in New South Wales. As they glide alongside the sandstone cliffs, they find rock art made with red ochre.⁠
⁠
We meet local writer Georgina Reid, who shares her poetry with Aaron and Holly, and speaks of the gifts that we can give nature: our presence, our attention, and our care that underpins it.⁠
⁠
Georgina leaves us with a call to action from poet Mary Oliver:⁠
⁠
"Instructions for living a life. ⁠
🍃 Pay attention. ⁠
🍃 Be astonished. ⁠
🍃 Tell about it.⁠
⁠
What else is there?”- Georgina Reid, quoting Mary Oliver.⁠
⁠
If you have already completed your #NaturePact for the day, it is now your time to relax and take in the marvelous sights of the latest episode of #BackToNatureAU.⁠

How do you Forest Bathe or Rock Bask if you don't have a forest or large rock nearby? 💭 ⁠
⁠
Helpful tips and guidance.⁠
⁠
🌿 1. Seeing is believing – looking at an image of a Forest or sitting at a window framed by trees can help improve your overall wellbeing. ⁠
⁠
🌿 2. Hold on to what you love - hold a rock in your hand and feel the weight of it. Is it sanded smooth to the touch, or does it have cracks and crevices? That rock could probably tell a few tales!⁠
⁠
🌿 3. Tune in to nature sounds – do you have a favourite nature sounds app? If you can't be in the forest, close your eyes and listen, your imagination can do the work for you! ⁠
⁠
🌿 4. Bring the forest indoors – invite nature indoors by introducing new houseplants. Surround yourself with nature, wherever you are. ⁠

“I think nature kind of returns me to who I am. I know that when I’ve gone through difficult times in my life, to get out into nature - it’s like a medicine.” - Missy Higgins ⁠
⁠
On tonight's episode of #BackToNatureAU, the team are heading to the Otways to discover rainforest and rock, as well as to chat with singer-songwriter Missy Higgins who shares how nature gives her perspective. ⁠
⁠
It's in this episode where we see Aaron and Holly walk amongst towering trees, breathing in the phytoncides: tiny powerful compounds that offer protection. This is sometimes called ‘forest bathing’, translated from the Japanese word shinrin yoku.⁠
⁠
Be sure to tune in to ABC tonight at 8pm, or catch up on ABC iView.⁠

We’re going #BackToNatureAU again tonight with the latest episode, The Fires of Larapuna! 

A magnificent stretch of coastline in north-eastern Tasmania was named the Bay of Fires by an English explorer in 1773 as he watched the smoke rise from campfires lit by the first Tasmanians who knew it as Larapuna.

Once you’ve completed your #NaturePact for the day, kick back on the couch and tune in to the latest episode.

Spending time in nature is... getting your hands dirty!

Get in touch with nature and indulge all of your senses - see, touch, taste, smell, hear nature, and experience a wholistic connection.

Even if you’re in the garden doing some maintenance like weeding or mowing the lawns. Take a moment to stop and observe the world around you. You might see, smell or feel something you wouldn’t normally. Plus who doesn’t love the smell of freshly cut grass?!
