Local Biodiversity Tour

  • Chapman River Wildlife River Corridor (map)

Part of the Goodness Festival 2015

Explore Geraldton’s unique and fascinating biodiversity.

Join two of the Midwest’s leading biologist, Dr Mic Payne and Dr Jessica Stingemore, on a tour to discover the rich biodiversity we have right at our door step – a fun educational outing for the whole family.

Marine Biologist Dr Mic Payne will take you through an intriguing journey to discover the wonder of Beach Wrack (seaweed). Rub you toes in the sand and get hands on with the amazing critters that scatter our local beaches and enrich our coastline.

Dr Stingemore will guide your through the natural bewilderment of the Chapman River Wildlife River Corridor. The corridor is home to an amazing ten species of native mammals, 39 species of reptile, six species of frogs, 42 species of birds and more than 190 species of plants including several on the WA threatened species priority list.

The tour includes a river side morning tea, proudly sponsored by the Northern Agricultural Catchments Council.

Please bring a water bottle and wear a hat, sunscreen and shoes for walking.
