Free guided walk of the Waite Arboretum
Oct 6, 2019, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
This coming Sunday 6th of October come along for a free guided tour of the North West corner of the Waite Arboretum. Our team of knowledgeable guides and the group of volunteers involved in the maintenance of the site are offering this walk to highlight this area as a successful example of revegetation and regeneration in a much urbanised environment.
The walk starts at 11:00am and ends at 12:30pm. Meet the tour guides at the North West corner of the Waite Arboretum, entering through Fullarton Road, Gate No2 on Sir Walter Young Ave. Sturdy shoes, water and hat recommended.
Free guided walks of the Waite Arboretum are held on the first Sunday of every month.
Bookings are not necessary.
Groups of 10 or more can book guided walks on other days and times by arrangement. Cost $5 per person. School groups are especially welcome and special thematic walks have been developed. For bookings, contact Erica Boyle via email or on 8313 7405. Please note, Erica’s office hours are Thursdays 9 am to 2 pm, so email is the preferred contact method.
