Price FREE Get tickets

Event description

Granite Island is surrounded by Encounter Marine Park whose temperate waters are alive with marine life, some found only in Australia. Bottlenose Dolphins, fur seals and sea-lions, many seabirds, including little penguins, and iconic fish species, like leafy sea-dragons are part of the marine park ecosystem.

In addition, from May to September southern right whales arrive from Antarctica to raise their calves. Join our local Volunteer Rangers for a leisurely walk around Granite Island Recreation Park. You will hear stories about the Island and the amazing animals who call this part of the world home. Also, find out about local conservation efforts and citizen science programs aimed at supporting a healthy marine ecosystem.
