One of the special things about being a Bass Coast Shire resident is being invited to enjoy free entry at the Nature Parks’ annual Community Open Day on Sunday 15 March 2020.
Discover your Island home and all of the Nature Parks’ attractions on this special once-a-year-day. There is free entry to the evening Penguin Parade (general admission), Koala Conservation Reserve, Churchill Island and the exciting Antarctic Journey at the Nobbies Centre. Being a Bass Coast resident also entitles you to enjoy 50% off an amazing EcoBoat Tour to Seal Rocks and entry of the incredible WILD Sandsculpting exhibition on this day.
Venture behind the scenes, meet the team and learn more about the Nature Parks - the not for profit conservation and sustainable tourism organisation in your backyard. There will be plenty of fun for kids with face painting, games, craft and more. Across the day, join our rangers, researchers and volunteers for special walks, talks, demonstrations and more.
A favourite part of the day is the Environment Expo with our community partners including a Welcome To Country and stalls and demos from our local CFA heroes, Boomerang Bags, Plastic Free Phillip Island and other community heroes. Rangers and researchers will also provide demonstrations of our working fox dogs and behind the scenes tours and activities.
As the sun sinks in the west, join our penguin experts for a Private Lives of Penguins tour and then free entry to the magical Penguin Parade.
Love your Nature Parks all year round!
