DRI’s Walk for Western Port is on again – Sunday 22 October!
There are two walks; around the foreshore starting at 10.30 or the Warringine Walk from 9.30. All money raised goes to our research and education programs. It’s an easy and fun way to show that yes, I do care. For more information and tickets click here.
The Warringine Walk is a favourite for many of our Walk for Western Port-ers! It’s a longer walk, nearly 7kms or so, but all easy going. The Warringine Park boardwalk was rebuilt in 2015 after most of it was destroyed by fire. The regeneration of the vegetation is amazing and the rangers believe the fire will maintain the biodiversity values of the park. The boardwalk passes through mangroves, coastal wetlands, riparian vegetation and woodlands. Warringine Park has the southern-most mangroves in the world!! And plenty of bird-life and good views to French Island. There are also several interpretative signs along the boardwalk, describing various features of the wetlands and its inhabitants.
Meet at the car park at Jacks Beach, Wooleys Rd, Crib Point at 9:30 am, Sunday October 22. From here, rangers from the Park will accompany the Warringine Walkers to Hastings, where we’ll meet up with the other Walkers and enjoy the fun and food at the Foreshore Reserve. (Remember, no dogs allowed in Warringine).
Transport can be arranged back to Jacks Beach if necessary.
