This April, enjoy an exciting array of events inviting all to connect with and learn more about the fascinating nature and wildlife that has its home on the beautiful Queensland Gold Coast.
Presented by City of Gold Coast, NaturallyGC – a long-running program of environmental-based workshops, activities and bushwalks – is a fantastic opportunity for nature-loving kids and adults to engage with wildlife and nature in a variety of events taking place up and down the Gold Coast.
From tree-planting and bushwalking to arts and crafts workshops and up-close animal encounters, NaturallyGC is an edifying and fun experience for all ages and backgrounds, and a great way to drum up some excitement if you’re heading to the Gold Coast this autumn!
As well as inspiring the local community to connect with the coastal city’s natural heritage, NaturallyGC encourages and promotes nature conservation, environmental awareness and values, education and learning, and the incentive to head out and discover the beauty of the outdoors.
With our central apartments on Burleigh Beach, Burleigh Surf provides a superb location for joining in NaturallyGC this autumn, where you can be sure to find a number of exciting NaturallyGC events taking place in the surrounding areas.
For the chance to get hands-on with nature and learn a thing or two along the way next to the whole family, make sure to head to the Gold Coast for these NaturallyGC events coming near our Burleigh Heads Beach apartments this April!
