Wetlands, wildlife and walks on offer through Green Week

From the beaches of Coolangatta to the hinterland of Mount Tamborine, Gold Coast is set to celebrate its environment with a nine day long schedule of activities.

From 31 May through 8 June, Gold Coasters can get closer to their favourite Aussie animal or take a magical undergound tour with thousands of glow worms. You can take your environmental knowledge to new heights at stargazing workshops or join marine biologists at on-shore whale watching information sessions.

From organic markets to sports and art activities, on our beaches, beside our creeks, through historical presentations and Indigenous tours, this year’s Green Week truly offers something for everyone, no matter what their shade of green.

The highlight of the week is Gecko’s Wildlife Expo, taking place Sunday 8 June at Australia Fair Southport.

Lynda Hull, Gecko President said the organisations was proud of the family and child-friendly nature of the program of events.

“It is important to engage our children as early as possible through fun and educational activities. The foundation of caring for our environment, its flora and fauna is one of the most precious gifts and legacies we can give them and this is exactly what we aim to do at the Gold Coast Green Week,” she said.
