Bondi Whale Festival
Come along to the Marine Discovery Centre in Bondi Pavilion to celebrate the 2nd annual Bondi Whale Festival on Sunday 3rd July from 10.00am to 3.30pm.
Visitors can meet “Venus”, a life-size 15metre inflatable Humpback whale and her calf; win great prizes (including a family whale watching boat trip from True Blue Cruises!) by following the clues on the ‘Whale Trail’ and decorating your own ‘Save the Whale Tail’ (hundreds of which will be put into the sands of Bondi at the end of the day to create a giant whale tail visual that says ‘hands off our humpbacks’!). You can also learn lots more about whales and what we can do to protect them with experts from whale conservation organisations at info-stalls on the Pavilion forecourt.
The highlight of the day is a free guided whale-watching walk to Marks Park Headland with Dr Michelle Blewitt of Marine Mammal Research (MMR)! The beginning of July is the peak period for whales passing Sydney on their migration north; however, please note sightings not guaranteed. Time 1.30-3.00pm. Please e-mail email@example.com or call us (02) 9300 0242 to secure your place on the free guided whale-watching walk (max 30 participants).
