Event description

Description

The St Helena Island Clean Up and Environment Expo will be a fun family day for everyone. The day will feature a free Environment Expo in Bayside Park opposite Coopers Cafe where you can find out all about the local organisations that protect our environment. For those that book tickets, there will be a chance to go to St Helena Island via one of our large boats to do a quick clean up and to explore the historic ruins.

This Clean Up is part of the Three Island Clean Up courtesy of a grant from Energex. Already we have cleaned the neighboring islands of Mud and Green removing tonnes of debris. Now it is St Helena's turn. However this event is more than just a clean up.
We will heading over to the island on either Cat'o'nine tails or the Moreton Bay Environmental Education Centers vessel Inspiration. You will be split into groups of approximately 30 people and conduct a clean up and also a quick tour of the ruins with a guide. You will then return to the mainland where we are holding our expo. Your tour will last approximately 5-6 hours in total. Departure times will be confirmed closer to the date, however both boats will leave in the morning. It is advised to BYO lunch.

St Helena Island is a heritage-listed island in Queensland, Australia, 21 kilometres (13 mi) east of Brisbane and 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) east of the mouth of the Brisbane River in Moreton Bay. Originally used as a prison, it is now a national park. Local Australian Aborigines called the island Noogoon but it was renamed St Helena after an aboriginal named Napoleon was exiled there in 1826. The island is visible from the mainland, particularly the suburbs of Wynnum, Manly and Lota. It has its own permanent water supply, a spring in the centre of the island. Many migratory birds use the island as a watering hole; it forms part of the Moreton Bay and Pumicestone Passage Important Bird Area, so identified by BirdLife International because it supports large numbers of migratory waders, or shorebirds
