Join us for a morning WALK along the beautiful NATURAL beaches north of the Maroochy River, from Power Memorial Park Mudjimba north to Birrahl Park, Yaroomba, a distance of about 7 kms. A shorter walk can also be completed, by starting at the Marcoola SLSC, about 3.5kms.

This event is being run by Coolum and North Shore Coast Care and Friends of Yaroomba, as a fundraiser for the Court Appeal against the outrageous approval of Sekisui’s highrise high density hotel and apartments beside Yaroomba Beach.

But more than that, it is an opportunity for you to show how much you care about keeping the Sunshine Coast’s beaches unspoilt for residents and visitors and friendly to our native wildlife, particularly our endangered loggerhead turtles.

How much do you value your natural beach – blue ocean, golden sand, green backdrop along the dunes? Registration costs $25. Your registration provides a lovely morning on the beach with family or friends, a swim between the flags to cool off at the end (or on the way), good company when you arrive at Birrahl Park, a sausage (or vegetarian) sandwich and soft drink at the end and a completion certificate.

Also we ask you to try to raise another $100 per person. How? Have a BBQ, do a car boot or garage sale, pass the hat around at work or school.

Mangroves are special places to explore. They are part of our unique Sunshine Coast wetlands, a place where some mangrove trees are older than our grandparents. They are a unique place that provided Aboriginal people with food and material to make tools and where crabs and other creatures scurry amongst the leaf litter. Where else can trees live in saltwater? Come for a walk with the Coolum Coast Care junior leaders and learn the secrets of mangroves. The Eco Discovery program starts at 10am at the Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary, Sports Road, Bli Bli. Overflow parking is available at McMartins Strawberry Farm and after the program you can pick fresh strawberries or have a berry treat. The program is geared to children from 4 to 11 years but it’s a family event.

Does your family love nature? Are your children keen to learn more about the local environment? The next Family Eco-Discovery workshop for families with young children (ages 4 -11) will explore animals that soar and swim.
Sharks are the most feared animals in our oceans but what is fact and what is fiction and how can we live together? Join sealife expert Raeleen Draper to learn how sharks are amazing creatures with unrecognised superpowers who play an important role in the marine environment. Children will use their knowledge to make a clay model shark.

The program will also feature shore and sea birds and how they use their environment.
