Join in the family-friendly activities at Coffin Bay National Park during December to celebrate it being Park of the Month.
National Parks and Wildlife Service South Australia ranger Sam Everingham lives and works in Coffin Bay National Park.
“It is a great time of year to explore the park’s beaches and rocky shores,” he said.
“During December there will be ranger guided kayak tours at Little Yangie Bay, beach detective children’s activities at Almonta Beach, a nature play area at Yangie Bay Campground and more.
“For families with younger children our nature play area at Yangie Bay is bound to be a hit.
“I hope this area encourages kids to get creative and explore nature, from building cubbies to balancing on logs, or simply playing in the dirt.
“Seeing the park from kayak is a unique way to enjoy the marine wildlife that live in the sheltered bays.
“You’ll see Coffin Bay’s hidden beaches and rocky shores up close.”
National Parks and Wildlife Service South Australia ranger Elly Schultz said she’s looking forward to hosting beach detective activities at Almonta Beach.
“This white sandy beach is one of the more sheltered beaches on the open ocean side of Coffin Bay National Park,” she said.
“Its home to a variety of marine animals, from star fish to sea snails.
“We will comb the beach and learn about the weird and wonderful plants and animals that inhabit this coastline.”
