Summer School Holiday Program

Inverloch visitors have shown great interest in the  BCE activities along the Bunurong Coast.  Mike Cleeland has scheduled extra dinosaur sessions to meet demand and many excited children  have found bone fragments at the Dig Site, adding to the experience.  Rockpool Rambles, Wildlife Spotlighting tours and Astronomy sessions are now planned for the December-January School Holidays.

The rock platform at the mouth of Anderson inlet continues to be a an exciting place to visit showcasing the enormous variety of life found along Australia's southern coastline.  This year two species of Sea Hare; the smaller black lined (Aplysia parvula) and larger (A. sydneyensis) and their spaghetti-like egg masses have been very prevalent.  It is a joy to see the excitement and wonder of people of all ages as they discover these and other creatures of the shore for the first time.  They see rocky shores in a new light; knowledge brings an understanding of their value and a confidence to visit these areas safely while nurturing  the inhabitants.

Bunurong Coast Education wins “Education Award”

At Victorian Coastal Awards 2014

Congratulations to all involved.

The Great Victorian Fish Count



Bunurong Coast Education/SGCS is pleased to be hosting a GVFC event again this year. We would like participants to be at Shack Bay by 10.30 for briefings and preparations for an 11.15 entry. It is a snorkelling activity only, and you need to have your own wetsuits etc. and be at least confident in the water.

There will be a free BBQ held after the activity for participants, family & friends.

If you are interested in helping, then please phone Rod Webster
