    Event description

    Discovery Walks are designed to connect you with the nature and community and are offered by Port Environment Centre with a range of walking lengths and locations.

    We invite you to join us for our walk between Semaphore and Largs dunes.

    Learn about this fragile ecosystem and the valued work of volunteers to educate and protect by restoring natural habitats and minimising threats to the plants and animals that call this place home.

    This walk is approx. 4km over a 2 hour period and a moderate level of fitness is needed.

    If you would prefer to walk one way only (to Largs) you have the option to organise your own lift back to Semaphore via taxi/uber/family if you choose – please just let us know on the day.

    Meeting spot: shelter sheds at Semaphore Foreshore (on the grassy area between Semaphore Jetty and the Carousel.

    Meeting time: please meet the group at 9.45am so we can all be ready to start promptly at 10am

    Initially we walk along the coastal path with volunteers who share their knowledge of the biodiversity within the dunes and the conservation work completed by volunteers. We return along the beach (weather permitting) back to Semaphore.

    Walking surfaces include footpaths, soft sand, grass and may include some gentle inclines and declines.

    There are toilets located at the start/finish spot at Semaphore foreshore area and near the Largs Bay Jetty.
