Wetlands Weekender Festival

12am to midnight
Celebrating our beautiful Peel-Yalgorup Ramsar Wetland
PHCC is excited to be hosting the first Wetlands Weekender this October, a three day festival celebrating our beautiful Peel-Yalgorup Ramsar Wetland and the amazing wildlife that inhabits these magnificent waterways. October is a significant time for our wetland as it aligns with the beginning of the migratory bird season. Every year migratory birds make the epic journey from the from as far away as the Arctic Circle to Australia, a staggering distance of 12,500 km, where they will spend the summer months before making the return trip.
The festival program kicks off on Friday the 11th of October and includes a variety of fun activities including an art exhibition, birdwatching, cultural storytelling, a citizen science event, a movie night, children’s activities and a wetland tour by boat.
We know there is something for everyone to enjoy, so book this one in your diary and browse the online program to find out more details about the great line up of events we have planned!
