Outdoor adventures are coming to Caboolture Region Environmental Education Centre, with animals, games and hands-on fun for World Environment Day.

The centre will come alive with creepy crawly fun from 10am on Saturday 4 June for CREEC Enviro Explorers.

Mayor Peter Flannery said visitors will be spoilt for choice with the huge selection of free activities on offer.

“You can tackle the all-abilities playground, featuring a wheelchair accessible play area, sensory walls, flying foxes and slides - or get your hands dirty with a seedling planting workshop,” he said.

An engaging line up of performers will take to the stage during the event, with children learning about our environment through song, shows and reptile demonstrations.

Visitors can also download the Agents of Discovery app, unlocking an interactive educational bushwalk around the centre.

Division 12 Councillor Tony Latter said he was looking forward to seeing the community come together and explore the natural environment and all it has to offer.

“It’s a great way to celebrate World Environment Day,” he said. “Kids can explore native wildlife, snakes, reptiles and little critters with live shows and interactive displays.

“They can choose from an array of enviro-themed workshops and the more adventurous explorers may want to tackle the huge rock-climbing wall.”

There will be information stalls for parents and markets stalls offering environmentally-friendly products. Grab a bite to eat from one of the delicious food vendors or bring a packed picnic and blanket. 

CREEC Enviro Explorers will run from 10am to 2pm on Saturday 4 June at Caboolture Region Environmental Education Centre, 150 Rowley Road, Burpengary.

This free event is proudly presented by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
