Event description

Bring your family down to Largs Beach in the January school holidays and learn all about the amazing things we can find right here on our local beaches.

Join local shell expert Peter Hunt and marine ecologist Dr Sue Murray-Jones on this guided beach combing session.

We'll explore the tide line and learn about the things we discover.

This is a fun way to learn about the beach environment through a hands-on experience.

This beach session is suitable for families with children of all ages. Adults and older children will learn so much about our local beach environment, whilst younger children will enjoy exploring the beach.

Please note that children must be accompanied by a guardian and be appropriately supervised by you at all times.

Adults are also welcome to attend without children, as there is so much all of us can discover and learn about our local environment.

Meeting Spot: Meet in the carpark to the north of the Largs Bay sailing club (on Lady Gowrie Drive, opposite Wigley Street). Please meet 5 minutes before the session starts.We will then wander along the beach towards the Largs Bay Jetty, before returning around 10.30am.

What to bring:

  • Please dress for the weather (sun safe clothing, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses)
  • Bring your water bottle and snacks
  • Bring along a bucket or small bag to hold what you find
  • We recommend you wear appropriate footwear and clothing to safely explore the beach environment.

We will postpone the event if the weather forecast is over 35 DecC and will notify you of this via email and sms. If we need to postpone, the backup date is Sunday 4 February, 9am - 10.30am.

The nearest public toilets are a 5 minute walk away from our meeting spot.
