What is Naturism All About?
udism, or Naturism as many people prefer, means a way of life in harmony with nature characterised by the practice of communal nudity, with the intention of encouraging self-respect, respect for others and for the environment.

Social nudism is a healthy, life enhancing activity, enjoyed by people from all walks of life. Children, parents, grandparents, singles and couples can all participate in the safe, family oriented environment fostered by clubs affiliated with the Australian Nudist Federation (ANF).

Many people enjoy being nude around the home especially during Perth’s summer, or swim nude in the backyard pool and when visiting free beaches. Some however, have discovered the additional benefits of clothing optional resorts, or are members of a recognised nudist club. The nudist lifestyle represents a chance to throw off the cares of the workaday world and enjoy the freedom of living the way nature intended.

Learn to be comfortable with your body and recognise the beauty of the human form in all its diversity, not just the advertising image that enslaves so many in our society.

Acceptance of nudity in public is growing around the world with increasing nudist tourism, nude relaxation in European city parks, nudity in the performing arts and in the media. Although some nudity in the media is based on sexuality there is an awareness of the legitimacy of naturism by the inclusion of segments in programs such as "Getaway" and "The Great Outdoors"; and Channel 7 has screened "Nude Moments" which examined some of the history and current practice of naturism.
