Here is a guaranteed good day out for the September school holidays…
For parents and children looking for a unique holiday experience, IndigiScapes’ Wonderful Wildlife event offers kids a close encounter with their favourite native animals.
The free family fun day coincides with Save the Koala Month and will be held at the Redlands’ IndigiScapes Centre on Friday 27 September.
Redland City Deputy Mayor Alan Beard said about 800 people were expected to attend the occasion, after a big turnout at a similar family day this time last year.
“Redlands has a significant urban koala population, so we really take our environment seriously. This is a perfect opportunity to celebrate Save the Koala Month and meet a koala as well as introducing children and families to some of our lesser known but equally important wildlife,” he said.
“From 10am to 2pm there will be displays, live animal presentations, craft activities, face painting and a free sausage sizzle to keep families of all ages entertained.”
Council environment spokesman Cr Paul Gleeson said Redland City’s eco angels including the Koala Action Group, Daisy Hill Koala Centre, Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland, Bat Conservation and Rescue and Redlands Wildlife Rescue Service would all be on hand to talk about their work, answer questions and show people what they do.
IndigiScapes is located at 17 Runnymede Road, Capalaba, and has plenty of parking. For more information about the event and other exciting environmental activities at the centre, visit www.indigiscapes.com.au.
