Darwin Day – Snorkelling at Burns Beach

Tickets are not available as this event has passed.

Date changed to February 14th

Following on from the Main Club’s February meeting about Charles Darwin’s time in Australia, we’ll be recognising International Darwin Day by seeing what marine life we can find while snorkelling at Burns Beach. Those who would prefer to stay on land (especially if the weather isn’t conducive to snorkelling) can join members in a beach sweep to see what evidence of marine life has washed up on the shore.

Club members, especially Young Naturalists, from all branches are welcome to attend. If snorkelling, Young Nats must be 10 years or older, capable swimmers and accompanied by a responsible adult when in the water.

Bring a face mask & snorkel, fins, water, sunscreen and hat. Underwater camera and wetsuits are optional if you have them. Meet at 8.30am in the carpark at the western end of Ocean Parade.

After snorkelling you might like to join us at a nearby cafe to discuss and identify what we saw.
