Walk for Western Port is always a fun day and all money raised goes to our research and education programs. We have two Walks again this year (last year’s Warringine Walk was cancelled due to the bush fire that went through the reserve – but we’re back in 2016!).
Our wonderful Walk around Hastings foreshore is suitable for everyone, no matter what level of fitness. There are three courses, all on level, wheel-chair and pram-friendly paths from 1-2 kms. Dogs are most welcome here, too. This walk starts off at 10:30.
The Warringine Walkers set off from Jacks Beach, Crib Point at 9:30. (And remember, Warringine Walkers – no dogs, and register online here before the walk). The Warringine Walkers can work up quite an appetite by the time they meet back up with us at Hastings foreshore after their 7 km trek along the boardwalk through the Warringine Reserve with local Rangers. As always, there will be fabulous food and refreshments (including great coffee, just what’s needed!) waiting at the Hastings foreshore for them.
And this year we have a surprise visitor. We have just been told by our good friends at Wildlife Coast Cruises that they’re bringing along a very special guest with them … Sammy the Seal is going to join us! Come along and meet Sammy; after all, how often do you get to say hello to a seal?
Also, don’t miss out on the magic and circus and balloon animals! Arrive early to be part of the amazing Hip Cat Circus Troupe – they are showing off their incredible circus skills! With demonstrations and workshops – you’ve got to get here early to be part of the fun.
After marvelling at the circus skills of the Hip Cat Circus Troupe, check out the magic from our favourite (Between you and me, he’s pretty good at balloon animals as well … see if you can spot him making some wonderful critters during the day).
