The club’s first excursion was to Leighton Beach after a storm in late July 1924.

The excursion leader was Ludwig Glauert, keeper of the biological collection at the WA Museum (He was promoted to Curator of the museum in 1927).

On Sunday 4th August we will visit Leighton Beach for a re-enactment of the event, this time being led, fittingly, by Dr Lisa Kirkendale, Head of Aquatic Zoology and Curator of Mollusca, at today’s museum.

We have booked a room from 10:00am at the North Fremantle Surf Living Club where we will meet, look at displays of past excursions and partake of light refreshments (tea, coffee, biscuits) before heading to the beach at 11:00am. We will return to the club room for further refreshments. We would like you to RSVP to ensure we have sufficient refreshments.

1920’s dress is optional but it would add to the occasion.
