Event description

Description

Come and celebrate the 5th anniversary of our boutique family wildlife event, the Sun Bear Children's Festival!

The theme of this year's event is 'Jump for Joy' and focuses on the love our children feel for kangaroos and other local wildlife, and the need to protect these lovely creatures from the threats of development, traffic, fire and culling.

Have fun playing the 'Jump for Joy' game, learn about wildlife rescue, go on guided nature explorations to discover the critters that live along the coast, engage in animal poetry and other exciting and creative wildlife & nature-focussed games & activities, and surround yourself with beautiful like-minded wildlife-loving community.
