Free in the sea
21 January 2016
A series of free outdoor activities for families will be held on Lower Eyre Peninsula between 25 and 28 January as part of the Immerse Yourself in a Marine Park summer calendar of events.
Holiday makers and locals are invited to register for a guided snorkel or reef ramble in Port Lincoln, Coffin Bay or Tumby Bay.
Marine Parks Regional Coordinator, Dr Shelley Harrison said she is delighted to facilitate these fun family activities and the community should book now as places are filling up fast.
“It’s a great chance to learn about our amazing coastal and marine environment while making family holiday memories,” Dr Harrison said.
“We have a unique marine environment around Eyre Peninsula, which many of us take for granted.
“The water is warm and inviting so it’s the perfect time to discover our marine life and learn from marine scientists on hand to answer your questions.
“Both the snorkelling and reef ramble activities are supervised experiences for the whole family however, parents must attend.”
Hosted by collaborating partners Reefwatch, Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries and Natural Resources Eyre Peninsula the reef rambles are a nature treasure hunt suitable for all ages.
Participants will wander along the rocky reef and beach shoreline at low tide to discover marine life and colourful habitat
