Keep It Natural - Walk for the Turtles

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.
