Exploring Windang Island

On Saturday 16th September 2017
9:00am - 12:00pm Save to calendar

Come along and explore Windang island, this unique coastal environment is at the entrance to Lake Illawarra and is linked to the mainland by a sand spit. Windang Island has high conservation significance and a fascinating history. Hear about the threatened grasslands, information about the geology and history of the Island. See the wheels and rails remaining from a failed attempt at making a harbour in the 1890's and spot the life in the rock pools at the surrounding beach area. Bring along your binoculars as we will take time to look for whales and sea birds from the great vantage point at the end of the Island. This is a medium grade walk and you must have a good level of fitness and agility as it involves walking on wet rocks, rock scrambling and walking on sand. Children aged over 10 years are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Places are limited and bookings are essential.
