First 100 kids to visit will receive a special gift

UPDATE: Due to the weather forecast on Sunday (10-30mm of rain AND a chance of thunderstorms in the morning and afternoon), we've made the decision to postpone the Children's Forest Celebration until Sunday 17 June.

You and your family are invited to join the Children's Forest Celebration on Sunday 17 June at Whiteman Park. Entry is FREE!

Proudly presented by Whiteman Park and Trillion Trees, this huge community celebration marks the final stage of the Children's Forest, a special place where children can learn about the importance and beauty of Western Australia's native bushland.

It's taken 18 years for the Children's Forest to come of age and now children can come and watch 'their' forest grow and flourish as they do.

The forest is free to explore and is home to many wonders, including giant marching ants, colourful birds, peeking possums, a life-size Wedge-Tailed Eagle's nest made of steel and the Forest's 'guardians', the Boy of the Bush and his sister Fern. Check out 50 Things to do in the Children's Forest here.


On the Celebration Day, the final trees will be planted and families can join in loads of free activities from 10am to 2pm!

The fun-filled day includes the chance to:

  • get dirty with mud and nature play activities

  • meet some native animals, including snakes, birds of prey and maybe even an echidna!

  • explore the forest with the bush fairies

  • get your face painted with a native animal or plant

  • help plant the last stage of the Children's Forest (Stage 18)

  • enjoy storytelling and more, all alongside the ever-growing forest

    Make sure to come along at 10am, as the first 100 kids will receive an awesome gift!

    The Children's Forest is located halfway between the Village and Mussel Pool.

    To get to the event, park in car parks 11 or 12 in the Village, or 20 or 21 at Mussel Pool and follow the signs to the planting site.
