Originating from Japan, Shinrin-yoku (or forest therapy) is a preventative health practice that improves wellbeing by immersing your senses in nature.

This guided experience is designed to increase your mental and physical health by reducing stress levels and lowering your pulse and blood pressure.

Nature Therapy invites participants to take time out of their busy lives so they can slow down and connect with the calming and health-giving benefits of nature. Facilitators will gently guide participants through a series of sensory experiences, mindfulness, quiet aware walking and nature appreciation to help promote slowing down, nature connection and relaxation. The experience, presented by the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and In My Nature, concludes with a Japanese-inspired tea ceremony.

The Nature Therapy Walk is recommended for people 13 years and over.

What to bring: this is an outdoor activity. Please wear comfortable footwear and clothing appropriate for weather conditions.

Please note: all walks are hosted by guides who have been certified and accredited by the International Nature and Forest Therapy Alliance.
