Programme urges locals to explore Randwick’s natural attractions

December 30, 2016 by  

Randwick residents and visitors will have plenty of fun coastal experiences and activities to enjoy during the summer holidays.

Mayor Noel D’Souza said Council’s Marine and Coastal Programme provided an ideal opportunity to explore and learn about many of the city’s natural attractions based in and around its dynamic foreshore.

The mayor stated that many of the activities included in the programme, which runs from January 9 to 24, 2017 have featured independently on tourist brochures but it was time local families took the time to explore their own coastal areas which are magical.

D'Souza appealed to everyone who had an adventurous spirit to take part saying there was something for all participants including learning to surf, experiencing a rockpool ramble, snorkelling at great locations such as Bare Island and setting out on a bush tucker trail.

There is a great deal to see and learn about including an array of stunning marine creatures together with a long list of activities that are virtually on residents’ doorsteps.

The innovative programme will include many memorable experiences such as the Catchment to Coast, Fred Hollow’s Reserve `Walk & Talk’ on January 10 which will take participants through one of the eastern suburb’s rare open creek lines complete with a commentary on the history, exotic bird species and hidden plant life by expert Sydney Bush Regenerator Danny Hirschfield.

Mayor D’Souza said also included in the programme will be free entry on January 18 to 22 into the La Perouse Museum.
